Callicoon is a ‘producer only market’ meaning all vendors either grow or produce their own goods and operate within 75 miles ensuring patrons are only purchasing the freshest, highest quality, locally produced goods. When you shop the market, you help support a local economy, keeping money within our towns and communities.

The beauty of any farmers’ market is the direct contact between consumer and vendor. You, as customers, can ask questions, learn about the farmers’ growing practices or find out how your favorite craft is made. The Callicoon Farmers’ Market reconnects the farmer with the consumer and to give selling opportunities for area craftspeople. They also serve to educate the community about eating seasonally and locally while fostering social gathering and community activity.

While in town, enjoy the many shops, restaurants and movie theatre this Delaware River town has to offer. Thinking of taking the drive? It’s worth every minute. The Callicoon Farmers’ Market is not just a place to shop, it’s a destination.
