Food, Music & Community
It’s all happening in Woodstock, New York.
The new town center (at least on Wednesdays) is the Woodstock Farm Festival. Although this year will only be its fourth year, this farmers’ market feels like it’s always been here.
The local, fresh food is not the only draw. Two seemingly divergent areas of interest combine for a truly special atmosphere. Of course, under their pop-up tents, you’ll see all the vendors with their ultimate-in-freshness wares, but a closer look reveals more — a music venue. If there’s anything one can depend on in Woodstock, it’s a good crop of local musicians.
This market may be small, but there’s plenty to see and do. The market features great tasting food from local restaurants, educational actvities for kids, world-class farmers and producers from the region, and all types of music. There’s even the Mower’s Flea Market, a Woodstock institution.
To drift from flea market to farm market and back again, listening to great music and enjoying freshlyâ€¨prepared foods is a wonderful way to spend a summer’s evening.
