The Blairstown Farmers' Market is run by the Foodshed Alliance Farmers’ Access Network and has been hosting the Blairstown Farmers' Market for the past nine years. Dedicated to bringing consumers and farmers together, this one-of-a-kind market will feature locally grown foods, all grown and/or produced in our beautiful area and features cooking demonstrations, festivals, live music, children’s activities, and seasonal food celebrations throughout the season.
The Market fulfills a major role in the Foodshed Alliance Farmers’ Access Network’s mission to develop a local food system, where eating locally and seasonally is the first choice. Executive Director Kendrya Close explains, “We want to provide all residents in our area with a centralized location to obtain fresh, locally grown and produced meats, cheeses, flowers and plants all grown by our farmers. Doing this while meeting your neighbors and helping to support your local farming community makes for an ideal family-focused experience!”
The market showcases vendors with everything from meat to cheese, artisan breads to fruit, eggs, baked goods, prepared foods and all of the fantastic products you have all come to love and rely on. Specialty products such as Southern- style cakes, prepared dinners, soups and sauces, local cheeses, coffee drinks, organic chicken, berries, pickles of all variety, local honey, and so much more!
The community commitment to local farms and food enables the Market to continue to provide each member of our community with access to local, healthful, nutritious food options each week.
The Market, located on Route 521 across from the Blairstown Elementary School next to the Agway, will run every Saturday from 10am-2pm June through October and feature a variety of local farmers, artisans, speakers, workshops, musicians and children’s activities.
