The Peekskill Farmers Market runs from 8 AM to 2 PM every Saturday. Bursting with farm stands and food producers, the market also has prepared food vendors with fresh fish, and middle eastern food. Most vendors are based within 250 miles of the market. They bring locally grown vegetables including a certified organic option, award-winning cheeses, imported spices, olive oils, maple syrup, honey, baked goods, pickled items, and freshly cut flowers. You will also find farm-raised, hormone and antibiotic free poultry, pork, chicken, grass fed beef, and eggs. Live music from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM.
