SARATOGA SPRINGS  — The Saratoga Farmers’ Market Association’s (SFMA) Saturday market has returned to its traditional summer home at the High Rock Park pavilions. Through the end of October, the SFMA will now host two weekly markets in the downtown location: Wednesdays from 3-6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

This year’s Saturday market features around 60 local vendors selling fresh produce, dairy products, eggs, meats, flowers, baked goods, prepared foods, and more. At Wednesday’s market, just over 15 vendors provide a similar range of items.

The decision to start the summer season in two locations in May was made to keep market vendors and customers safe while the COVID-19 pandemic required more social distancing. The smaller Wednesday market fit comfortably at High Rock Park, but for the larger Saturday market a more expansive footprint was still needed. Now that restrictions have been lifted, both markets are able to return to the pavilions - with increased spacing where possible to ease customer flow.
