About the Market

The market began back in 1994 when a group of residents and business people organized with the goal of creating a venue to promote Hudson Valley agricultural products and to enhance the social and economic vitality of the Town and Village of Rhinebeck.

The market has since evolved into something greater. It has become Rhinebeck's Sunday morning gathering place. A place where neighbors meet and mingle and visitors can sample the very best of the Hudson Valley. Our vendors provide a diverse and unique selection of farm fresh products including fruits and vegetables, beef, pork, lamb, venison, buffalo, fish, chicken, turkey, duck, pheasant, rabbit, eggs from chicken, duck, turkey and pheasant, goat, cow and sheep's milk cheeses, dairy, honey, juices, jams, flowers & plants, smoked products and much more.

A full schedule of special events highlights the bounty of the seasons with chef demonstrations, tastings, recipes, childrens' activities, free live music and more.

The Rhinebeck Farmers' Market is unique in that it is not supported by a civic or governmental organization and enjoys no special eligibility status. The market relies solely upon vendor fees, business sponsors, donations, volunteers and merchandise sales for its operating funds. To learn more about becoming a sponsor, visit our sponsor page.
