Farms & Flavors

The Lake Champlain Region has an abundance of farmers providing delicious food to the Adirondack region. Travelers and locals can take part in the action by attending one of the many seasonal events or by stopping in at a farm store while on a scenic drive through the valley. The Lake Champlain Region is special for its location along the stunning Adirondack coast, nestled within a valley making it a desirable place to farm. Between farmers markets and seasonal festivals, there’s a lot to see, do, and eat in the Lake Champlain Region.

Adirondack Harvest Festival

The Adirondack Harvst Festival, held in September at the Essex County Fairgrounds, is one of the best ways to experience the region's many farms in one place. This annual celebration is where good food, farmers, and educational opportunities come together for a weekend of fun. There's live music, roundtable discussions, and delicous food!
