Washington Park Farmer’s Online Market starts Friday, June 5th
One of the best things about the Capital Region is the abundance of farmer’s markets. With the current pandemic, farmer’s markets are adapting new ways to still connect the community by supporting local farms and businesses. The Washington Park Farmer’s Market started last summer in Albany, bringing fresh and diverse products for all surrounding neighbors. Next week, the WPFM will begin their online market until they fully open on July 4th. They are currently seeking farm vendors, restaurants, artists, crafters, mom and pop shops, etc for their online market that goes live next week.
