Well it’s finally here. It’s officially Farmers’ Market Season here in the Adirondacks!
The Winter Farmer’s Markets we attended in Westport at the Heritage House gave us a great boost in support and experience.
Being our first ever market, it was similar to a “soft opening.”
These off-season monthly markets provided us the perfect testing ground to try out new recipes and gauge local interest in good bread.
With the high season soon approaching, we’ve been busy getting prepared and organized to make sure that our booths are inviting and that they meet NYS Ag & Markets requirements.
We want to make sure we can tell the story of our farm and business and present our breads and baked goods in the best possible manner.
A farmer’s market table that is easy to set-up and break-down is also a necessity.
Summer Farmer’s Markets
Triple Green Jade Farm is happy to announce that we will be featuring our artisan breads and baked goods at the following area farmer’s markets:
Lake Placid Farmers' Market
Wednesdays beginning June 28 from 9am – 1pm in the parking lot of St. Agnes in lovely Lake Placid. We’ve attended this market as customers many times and always found it to have a good vibe. Also it’s a 100% producer-only market, meaning that all farmers/vendors grow or make 100% of their own goods themselves. [learn more]
Willsboro Farmers' Market
Thursdays under the pavilion in Gateway Park beginning June 15th, 9am – 1pm. As our farm is in Willsboro, this will be the shortest drive we have to make to any of the markets! Lunch will be provided by Papa Duke’s BBQ. Yum! [learn more]
Elizabethtown Farmers' Market
Fridays starting June 2, 9am – 1pm, located behind the Adirondack History Museum. [learn more]
Saranac Lake Farmers' Market
Starts June 3rd at the Riverside Park, 9am – 2pm. We’ve known for years that this a well-attended market that is a 100% producer only affair. We like that a lot! [learn more]
Plattsburgh Farmers' Market
Started May 13th at the Durkee Street Pavilion, from 9am – 2pm.
We started attending this market on opening day and although the weather was a bit cold and windy, we had a very good turnout. Plus there was live music with lots of sing-along opportunities for us vendors!
Customers told us they were excited that “real bread” had returned to the farmer’s market.
Morning patrons enjoyed our Cardamom Raisin Buns on the spot as they munched their way to the cars.
The covered pavilion is nice because it allows us to leave the pop-up tent at the farm. [learn more]
Visit us at the market this season
We hope you get the chance to visit us this season at the farmer’s markets.
If you can’t make it, we will also have artisan bread and baked goods at our farm later this Summer.
We have also received requests for our bread at area restaurants like the Deer’s Head Inn and food co-ops like North Country Food Co-op.
Wholesale is a large part of our business planning, so if you know of other places who would be interested in having our bread, please let us know.
“Good bread is hard to find” is what one passing customer told us in Plattsburgh this past weekend.
“Well,” I said, it’s what we love to do and that’s what we’re here for.”
