For well over 30 years the Peekskill Farmers Market has been a fixture on Bank Street in downtown Peekskill. This year is no different. The annual Peekskill Farmers Market gets underway this Saturday, June 1 beginning at 8am and finishing at 2pm. The Farmers Market will run every Saturday  continuing through November 23, regardless of the weather. 

Every week there will be the regular vendors intermingled with new vendors and local non-profits so patrons will always find something new and exciting. Follow the Peekskill Farmers Market on Facebook and on Instagram for weekly vendor participation. Don’t forget to bring a card and cash as the forms of payment. Payments accepted varies by each vendor. In addition, some vendors will also accept SNAP EBT and WIC as forms of payment.

The Peekskill Farmers Market is sponsored by the Peekskill Business Improvement District (BID. The BID supports downtown public markets such as the Peekskill Farmers Market on Saturdays, and the Peekskill Flea Market on Sundays, because they improve the quality of life for Peekskillians by providing important healthy alternative food sources while also introducing visitors to all that downtown Peekskill has to offer. Peekskill’s small local businesses carry things you won’t find in big box stores. In addition, the downtown has amazing restaurants and cafes, loads of talented artists and musicians, and a downtown where knowing your neighbor still matters.
