SFC Farmers' Markets are open this Saturday! Stock up for your week at home and shop from local farmers, ranchers, and small food businesses.

Due to our new safety regulations, you may experience a short wait to enter the market area. In accordance with national and local recommendations, we are now asking all market shoppers to wear a face mask while in the market area. Follow these tutorials from the CDC or the New York Post to make a mask at home! Please visit our website to learn more about these and other safety measures to help you prepare for your visit.
