Farmer’s Markets- Buy Local and Support Local Stewardship

vegetablesjpg-bd6e936d0a835966The Cortland County Soil and Water Conservation District supports conservation on farms by providing technical and financial assistance for conservation projects and supporting the use of best management practices.  There are many farms enrolled in a variety of conservation practices throughout Cortland County, that are dedicated to maintaining economically and environmentally viable soils and protecting water quality in our district.

A great way to support our local farmers and to save on the fuel and cost of transporting produce grown elsewhere, is to purchase goods at local farmer’s markets.

There are many small farmer’s markets within Cortland County and they are getting ready to open for the season- here are a few:

The Cortland Farmer’s Market, on Main Street, continues its regular hours on Saturdays and Tuesdays throughout the summer from 8am-2pm .  Visit the CortlandFarmersmarket Main St. facebook page for more information and updates.

The Homer Farmer’s Market, on the Village Green, opened for the season beginning May 7th and will be open on Saturdays throughout the season from 9am to 1pm.  Visit the Homer Farmer’s Market website for more information and updates on the weekday market and indoor/winter market.


Farmer’s Markets are great way to get the community outdoors and eating healthy.  Most markets carry a variety of local goods including vegetables, fruits, baked goods, meats and cheese, crafts and much more.

Buy local.  Eat local.  Support Your Local Producers.
