Goshen, N.Y. – Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus has announced that the Goshen Chamber of Commerce’s popular Farmers Market will open for the season on Friday, May 19th.
“We are proud to support Farmers Markets and look forward to hosting the Goshen Farmers Market at the Government Center,” Neuhaus said. “Buying products from any of our great community markets is a wonderful way to support our local agricultural industry. It’s a great way to eat healthy and ensures a sustainable Orange County.”
The Goshen Farmers Market, which will be located at the corner of Main and Erie Streets, will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every Friday until November 17th.
Countywide, there are more than a dozen markets to explore when the season is in full swing. Each has its own unique offerings and a variety of vendors who take pride in their homegrown products. In addition to farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, there is a wide array of artisan dairy products, gourmet prepared foods, adult craft beverages, honey, locally raised meats, cut flowers, live plants, and much more available for purchase. Many markets also feature live music to set the mood for a fun, family-friendly, shopping experience.
Farmers' markets support a $100 million-dollar agricultural industry in Orange County, stimulating the local economy and creating jobs. Approximately 16 percent of the County’s land is farmland and over 10,000 acres are used in vegetable production, which is the third largest in the state.
