Saturday mornings on Elm Street are busy with music, shopping, food and friends as the Gloversville Farmers Market brings local growers to the city for shoppers to find fresh produce and unique creations.


Located at 9 Elm St., the market is held on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from May through October. Run by the Fulton Montgomery Farmers Market Association (FMFMA) which touts its markets are 100 percent producer markets, “which means that every vendor grew, raised, or made all of the products they offer for sale at the market,” according to website https://fmfma.org.



A variety of goods for sale including baked items, flowers, eggs, herbs, vegetables, meats, plants and fruits.

Why shop at the farmers market? According to www.usda.gov, “Farmers markets feature what’s at the peak of season in your region, so you can often find your favorites, along with new items that will stretch your culinary imagination.”



While there, customers also have one-on-one time with the farmer or the culinary creator and are able to get growing tips, cooking suggestions and other secrets that make foodies go wild over new dishes and tastes.



Online reviews of the Gloversville Farmers Market include “great vendors with products at great prices too! Fresh vegetables, plants, etc.,” “Lots of variety in the summer,” and “Great farm veggies!”


The property at 3-8 Elm Street surrounding the market was an under-utilized parking lot, giving the market housed under a beautiful pavilion a feel of being a lonely island in a sea of asphalt. This summer, the area will be transformed into a new public park with an eatery pavilion, places for food trucks, inviting greenspace, and spots for special events to enhance and compliment the market. This transformation is part of the city's $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative.



Don’t let the construction deter you as the farmers market is still in full swing this summer and filled with colorful delights that will inspire your cooking and delight your palette.
