Farmers Markets & U-Pick Farms
Come explore the beautiful farmlands of the Finger Lakes where you can enjoy the bounty of fresh products. Pick them yourself or visit a farmer's market. U-picks are for anyone wishing to grab the freshest fruits or vegetables. Check out our array of farmers markets. Early June strawberries and fresh-cut flowers come first in the seasonal selections. Then there is peak-of-summer sweet corn and tomatoes. Our fall tastes range from hearty autumn pumpkins, apples, cabbages to lots of root vegetables and of course, grapes. Small family farms are the heart and soul of our farmers markets and farm stands.
Weekly farmers markets take place in many communities, including Canandaigua, Geneva, Victor, Clifton Springs. Vendors are happy to share recipe ideas and answer questions about their sustainable or organic practices. These markets are the place to shop for locally raised meats and eggs, homemade baked goods and hot foods, jams, jellies, ciders, and crafts. It is always a locavore feast in the Finger Lakes. Dig in.
P.S. Our friends at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ontario County have put together a local food guide that will help you find farm stands, farmers markets, u-pick farms, and other local foods. You can view that guide here.
