COLD SPRING, N.Y. -- On Saturday, the Cold Spring Farmers Market will move indoors to its village location at the Parish Hall of the Episcopal Church of St. Mary-in-the-Highlands in Cold Spring.
The beginning of its 2015-16 indoor season, which runs to May, also brings an adjustment to the market's hours: It will now operate from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Please note this change – to open one hour later – for the market’s indoor season.
This adjustment was made in order to better serve the needs of the market’s vendors and customers during the coming winter months. The indoor market, at the corner of Main Street and Route 9D in Cold Spring, provides shoppers with the opportunity to enjoy locally grown food while showing support for regional farms and food shed.
The market vendors are farmers or food artisans who use locally sourced ingredients -- whose subsistence depends on markets like Farmers Market. The market offers produce (both organic and conventionally grown), fish, meats, breads, fruits, preserves, cheeses, pastas, syrups, sauces, honey, savory pastries, gluten-free baked goods, plants, coffee, ice cream, wines, herbs, teas, ciders, wools, soaps and a variety of other items.
As a reminder, the Cold Spring Farmers Market now accepts payment with the SNAP benefits card, too. SNAP, also known as the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, offers nutrition assistance to eligible, low-income individuals and families.
The market connects its community and visitors to locally grown food while supporting Hudson Valley farming and farmers. All market vendors meet strict guidelines, grow or raise their products within a 200-mile radius, use locally sourced ingredients and depend on their farms for a living.
