Farm markets make mouths water

Seen here on its third Saturday (June 5) of the new season, the Copake Hillsdale Farmers Market has become one of Columbia County’s destinations not to be missed. Three dozen vendors were selling everything from greens and flowers to grass-fed beef, and from milk and cookies to bitters. The market is accepting SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) coupons at double their value, so that each dollar of the coupon’s value buys two dollars worth of fresh produce, dairy or meat.
