Where farm-to-table is a way of life
For centuries, a hefty annual harvest of fruit, produce, and meat, along with products such as maple syrup, beer, wine, honey and cheese has been produced in the Champlain Valley. This beautiful section of the Adirondack Coast, where farm-to-table is a way of life, has become a beacon of community farming in the northeast.
Travelers and locals can enjoy the bounty of the area's harvest year-round at farmers markets, farmstands and farm stores in the Adirondacks and in restaurants throughout the Adirondacks that feature local food.
Adirondack Harvest Festival
Seasonal celebrations of the region, like the Adirondack Harvest Festival, are one of the best ways to experience the region's many farms in one place. This annual celebration is held in September at the Essex County Fairgrounds, where good food, farmers, and educational opportunities come together for a weekend of fun. There's live music, roundtable discussions, and delicious food!
Visit Agri-alley in Keeseville on Mace Chasm Road for three farms meeting all of your food needs — Mace Chasm, North Country Creamery and Clover Mead Cafe, and Fledging Crow. Mace Chasm Road is located near scenic Ausable Chasm.
The Hub on the Hill
Stop by Hub on the Hill and check out their market stocked with local farmers’ products and handcrafted wares. The Hub on the Hill is the Adirondacks' food hub and is located right next to Essex Farm. Plan a farm tour at Essex Farm to see where many Adirondack farmers get their start. Essex Farm offers a year-round, full-diet CSA. This is no small feat for one farm.
