The Harvest Guide will be distributed at farmers markets, events, businesses, tourism spots and more across the county. It is also

Farmers Market Season Is Here!

Farmers markets are one of the most popular forms of shopping for local food. Farmers markets are a collection of producers at a specific place and time within a community that set up a booth to sell their goods. It is a great opportunity to buy all your in season products directly from the farmer who you’ve now met and know. Furthermore, farmers markets are great for the area they are held in. Consumers may be enticed to shop at other businesses in the vicinity of the farmers market. These indirect sales have been estimated to be $.58 for every dollar spent at a farmers market. In the same study, a job multiplier of 1.45 was found, in other words, for every job at a farmers’ market, nearly half of another job was supported somewhere else in the local economy!

There are six farmers markets around Oswego County, here is where you can find them:

  • Fulton Farmers Market – Saturdays from 8 am – 1 pm, starts May 30th
    • Canal View Park & Shop parking lot, S. 2nd Street, Fulton
