Troy Farmers Market Back on Streets May 6
TROY — The Troy Waterfront Farmers Market returns to Monument Square and surrounding streets starting this Saturday, May 6.
The market is famed for its street festival atmosphere with about 100 farmers and fresh food vendors spread throughout several city blocks. The market also includes a Makers Market, live music, prepared food, eating areas, and community tables. Well-behaved dogs are permitted in the market area.
The market is every Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
As in previous years, all streets included in the Farmers Market permit area will be posted “No Parking” from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays during the months of May through October.
There are free parking facilities around the market, including the State Street Parking Garage (at State and River streets); Riverfront Park; the Green Island Bridge parking lots; and the Fifth Ave Garage (between Broadway and State). The Uncle Sam Parking Garage was demolished this fall.
Parking on the street is free.
About the Troy Waterfront Farmers Market
The Troy Waterfront Farmers Market is one of the most popular attractions in the Capital Region.
From May through October, the market transforms the heart of downtown Troy into an open-air street festival that could easily pass for a scene in Europe. On the busiest days, as many as 15,000 people visit the market to shop for fresh local produce, meats, seafood, prepared foods and handmade crafts. Couples, families, college students, and neighborhood regulars all mingle in Monument Square, and up and down River and 2nd St, milling around between the tents, sidewalk tables, and music stages.
Many stay to socialize and explore downtown’s many charming shops and vibrant eateries. The market moves inside from November through April.
Today, the Troy Waterfront Farmers Market routinely receives “Best of” accolades by regional media and in reader polls. In 2019, the market earned the American Farmland Trust’s People’s Choice award for the No. 1 farmers market in the nation.
