That’s why we are offering an EARLY SIGN UP BONUS this year:
Our season will officially run from the first week in June through the last week in October this year. That’s 21 weeks of vegetables. Sign up by February 15th to receive a generous end-of-the-year share at Thanksgiving, plus access to the early greens before the season officially begins.

There are some really great winter markets this year. Most winter markets occur once a month, but now there are so many that you can feasibly attend a winter market every week in this area.
- My favorite is the Winter Sun Farmer’s Market at Deyo Hall in New Paltz. It occurs the second Saturday of the winter months from 10-3. As far as food, you’ll find roots from Four Winds Farm, delicious salad mix from Cuomo Farm, roots and micro greens from Veritas Farm as well as maple syrup, cheese and bread. I am there selling seeds for the Hudson Valley Seed Library, so make sure to say “hi” if you stop by.
- New this year is the Gardiner Green Market, on the third Saturday of each winter month, from 11-3. I’ve heard great things about this market, check it out for local vegetables!
