Where can I park?
In Saratoga during the summer market season, on-street parking is available in front of the market on High Rock Avenue and nearby streets. Large municipal parking lots are located just south of the market, near the corner of Lake Avenue on High Rock Avenue. There is no charge for any parking on the street or in the lots. (If you park far away, remember we offer a Veggie Valet service on Saturdays to help transport your purchases via wagon to your car.)
At our Saratoga winter market, or the Malta and Clifton Park summer markets, each location has designated parking lots.Back to Index

Are all the products at the markets organic?
Are there CSA farms at the market?
Some of our farms offer Community Supported Agriculture arrangements, allowing people to buy a share of the farm’s season in advance and then pick up a weekly portion of the harvest. Most farms offering such arrangements have literature and signs at their booths where you can find out more. See our current list of vendors providing CSA on our Programs page.Back to Index
How can my non-profit organization or group set up an information table?
In order to have an information table at a Saratoga market, you need to send in a proposal describing your group, your purpose at the market, and what you will be setting up. You can use the form on the Contact page to do this. No fundraising is allowed at the market. If your proposal is approved, you will need to supply your own table and chairs. You will receive an assignment of the space you will occupy on the day of your appearance from the Market Manager. We cannot guarantee a specific location in advance of your arrival.
May I bring my dog to the market?
How can I get all my purchases to my car?
Does the market accept Senior or WIC farmers’ market coupons?
Does the market participate in the SNAP or EBT program?
At the Saratoga Springs markets, you can present your EBT card at the Market Shed (or at the market table in the winter) and receive the same wooden tokens that are offered to our debit/credit card purchasers. At the Malta and Clifton Park markets, you will need to inquire about which vendors accept SNAP/EBT.Back to Index
Is there an ATM at the market?
Who can I talk with about a suggestion or question?
At the Saratoga market, please see the Market Coordinator who is usually at the Market Shed (the tiny green house between the left and center pavilions). In Malta and Clifton Park, speak with the Market Manager, who is one of the vendors responsible for site management. You can also use the Contact page and send in your question, and we’ll get back to you.
Where are the bathrooms?
At the Saratoga High Rock Park market, there is a public bathroom located behind the Market Shed, which is between the left pavilion and the center pavilion as you face the market from the sidewalk.
At the winter Saratoga market, there are bathrooms available in the Lincoln Baths building. In Malta, bathrooms are available in the Malta Community Center. In Clifton Park, the church has bathrooms.Back to Index
Food Stamps / EBT / Credit & Debit Cards
In Saratoga at the green Market Shed, the market is able to process food stamp, credit cards and debit cards for purchasing market tokens that our farmers’ market merchants all accept.
You can use your food stamp card to buy market tokens, which all food merchants are able to take. The tokens come in $1 and $5 increments and never expire. Change is not given at purchase, but it will be made up in product. You don’t have to worry about running out of money to buy what you need at the market.
Our EBT machine can process your charge or debit card and give you market tokens worth $5 or $10 dollars. All vendors accept them and exact change is given. There is no charge to you for this service.Back to Index
