Wegmans Organic Farm, Canandaigua

Farms & Markets

Fresh tastes, plenty of variety, and a great deal of sharing the farmers' bounty is second nature in the Finger Lakes. Meet the farmers who grow the produce at our farmers markets. Stop at a roadside farm stand for sweet corn or plums. The honor system is alive and well here --- just leave the cash in the coffee can.

Come celebrate agriculture with us at the annual Naples Grape Festival, and Ontario County Fair every July! U-pick is fun for the whole family. Spend a morning in the season of your choice: strawberries, blueberries, and grapes are top choices. 

Looking for a new experience? Get up close and personal with alpacas, whose soft, protective fibers make wonderful sweaters and capes. Perhaps you want to learn about maple sugaring? In the Finger Lakes you can tour a sugar shack in early spring to see how maple trees are tapped and the sap is cooked down into syrup. 

Farm fresh and local are the flavors of every month in the Finger Lakes. Experience it for yourself and view our Ontario County Buy Local Food Guide.
