Copake Farmers Market - 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
9140 Rte. 22
Copake, New York
United States
508-335-0055
Price: FREE

Copake Farmers Market This is one of the most progressive farmers markets I've ever been to. Fresh organic produce direct from the fields and hills of the Western Berkshires. (I never leave without any!) Local businesses sponsor each week thereby allowing performers to be compensated in something other than the great produce! I have performed here for the past few years as it is near my kids and grandkids in the Berkshires and makes for a great dual purpose roadtrip! Promise new songs, new guitars, new set lists. Come one come all and browse!!
