Under the stewardship of Common Ground Farm, the Beacon Farmers’ Market has adopted its mission to feed and engage the Beacon community, support local farms and businesses and create a more just food system since 2016.
The farmers’ market connects Common Ground Farm directly to the community by hosting a vibrant, welcoming and inclusive gathering space that contributes to the vitality of the City of Beacon. The market frequently partners with local businesses, complementary non-profit organizations, artists and musicians to host enrichment programming showcasing healthy eating, farming, cooking, gardening, sustainable living and Beacon’s vibrant arts scene.
The Beacon Farmers’ Market serves as a vital connection between local consumers and the farmers and food producers of the Mid-Hudson Valley. The market encourages and supports sustainable agricultural and business practices, ensuring high quality products for its customers.
The Beacon Farmers’ Market provides the community, rich in cultural and socio-economic diversity, with direct access to affordable, locally grown, fresh fruits and vegetables. We work to provide a vibrant market where local farmers and business owners can support their livelihood and receive fair compensation for their efforts. The market partners with a local network of food justice organizations to support and develop efforts to address hunger in and around the Beacon community.
