Cambridge, NY Farmers' Market Cambridge, NY Farmers' Market

The Cambridge, NY Farmers' Market (Sunday's 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM) is not your typical farmers' market. Yes, there are produce vendors selling a variety of locally grown vegetables, plants, herbs, and flowers; but you can also purchase delicious lunches or enjoy a wine tasting while you shop, find beautiful pottery, original art, alpaca wool, handmade soaps, and so much more.

As a producer only market, each vendor is the source of the merchandise they sell. You won't find any middleman, or woman, at the Cambridge, NY Farmers' Market and the vendors are happy to chat about their products. The market also showcases local musical talent. On June 18th Barry Hyman and friends will be under the music tent. The Market is a family friendly place where you can dance with your children, show off your dog, make new friends and meet your neighbors. Enjoy the music but remember to drop a little something into the hat, because the musicians play for tips.

Our Featured Vendor: Free Bird Farm

Owners Ken Fruehsrtoffer and Mary Ellen Driscoll raise the tastiest chicken I've ever eaten. Folks in Cambridge have learned to get to the Market early so they have their pick of Free Bird's plump free-range chickens.

But it's not just chicken that you can find at the Free Bird booth. Mary Ellen has wonderful greens, eggs, salad mix and more. You can find everything you need to magnificent meal. I especially like to make their chickens on a can of beer. Yes, you read it right, "chicken on a can", grilled to perfection is yummy!
