(open May-Oct)

High Rock Park, 112 High Rock Ave, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

Welcome to the Saratoga Farmers’ Market located at High Rock Park in historical Saratoga Springs, NY.  We are here to serve the community from May to October on Wednesdays from 3 PM to 6 PM and Saturdays 9 AM to 1 PM.  
We are a 501(c)3 and our market has been in existence since its creation in 1978; the first in the area of its kind.  Our Saturday market is the largest of our two weekly markets, but both are bountiful and created to serve the community with locally grown and produced items.  
While each market is slightly diverse, they primarily offer a variety of seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables, ready made meals, fresh brewed coffee and locally roasted coffee beans, locally grown meat products, fresh eggs, locally produced dairy products, fresh baked goods, an array of floral vendors, arts & crafts, locally produced items such as jams, spice mixes, honey, maple syrup, distilleries and other gifts and creative finds.   
You will discover a calendar of activities throughout the season including musical entertainment, educational activities, workshops, children’s activities and special events.

Where do I bring my compost?

The compost is located behind the market information shed during Wednesday and Saturday markets during the outside market season.

How can I become a vendor at the market?

The markets are currently full for vendors but you are welcome to apply for our waitlist on our website at: Our regular application cycles are in January (for summer markets) and August (for winter markets) and can be accessed through the link above as well.

Do vendors take cards?

Please note that we do not use wooden market tokens anymore – all our vendors take cash and many accept credit, just ask! Old debit/credit market tokens are still being honored.

Will the market be canceled if there is rainy weather?

Rain or shine, outdoor markets will run as usual. Only in exceptional circumstances, including severe thunderstorms, might the market close early or be paused for a brief period of time.

Where can I park?

There is limited street parking available on High Rock Ave and a parking garage located between Maple and High Rock Ave. The High Rock Ave parking garage (on the south end of the market) offers one free hour of parking for customers, with a fee of $1 for every hour after that. Other parking options are available in the downtown area. 

Does the Farmers’ Market have gift certificates?

Yes! Our market Gift Certificates are available for purchase at the market information shed at our Saratoga markets. The gift certificates go up to $25 each (but you can always purchase multiple if you need a greater amount). You can use this gift certificate with any of our vendors. We accept credit/debit and cash.

Where can I buy a Saratoga Farmers’ Market logo item, like a t-shirt or tote bag?

We have some vendors who are USDA Organic or follow organic practices and are otherwise certified (via Certified Naturally Grown); other vendors use conventional growing methods. All our producers use their own products at home and are mindful of fertilizers and pest-control methods they introduce. If you have a preference for growing methods, please ask at the market information tent in Saratoga and we will help to find vendors who meet your criteria. In Clifton Park, just inquire with the vendors.

Are there CSA farms at the market?

Yes, 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 information at their booths where you can find out more, or stop by the market information tent at the Saratoga markets for more information.

How can my non-profit organization or group set up an information table?

In order to set up an information table at a Saratoga market, you need to fill out our non-profit application form. No fundraising is allowed at the market. You will receive a space assignment 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?

We always welcome service animals at the market. Other dogs can pose certain challenges—sometimes unexpected even to their owners—especially regarding small children, sanitation, and interactions with other dogs. If you choose to bring your dog to the market, please be prepared to fully supervise your pet at all times and take responsibility for its actions, and follow these “Market Manners for Dogs” guidelines.

Does the market accept Senior or WIC farmers’ market coupons?

Many of our farms accept WIC and Seniors farmers’ market coupons. Ask the vendor directly or stop by the market information table to receive a list of approved farms. We encourage you to take full advantage of your benefits. If you participate in a public assistance program and need tips on how to prepare foods from the market, call a Cornell Cooperative Extension nutrition educator at 518-885-8995 (free service).

Does the market participate in the SNAP or EBT program?

At the Saratoga markets, you can present your EBT card at the market information tent and receive wooden $1 and/or $5 tokens. You will also receive a free $2 FreshConnect coupon (also to be used on SNAP-eligible items at the market) for each $5 you spend off your EBT card. At the Clifton Park markets, you will need to inquire with vendors directly if they accept SNAP/EBT.

Is there an ATM at the market?

At the Wednesday and Saturday markets an ATM will be available at the market information shed while supplies last.

Who can I talk with about a suggestion or question?

At the Saratoga markets, please see market staff at the market information shed. You can also use the Contact page and send in your question, and we’ll get back to you.

Where are the bathrooms?

There is a public bathroom at High Rock Park to the left of the market information shed along with a port-a-potty located near the fountains.
