About

The Albany County Farmers Market is presented by the Downtown Albany BID, in partnership with Albany County and MVP Health Care. Our goal is to operate a vibrant, open-air market series that provides our neighbors with fresh, high-quality food and artisan goods sourced from local farmers and producers. The market also seeks to strengthen and further activate our neighborhood by providing entertainment, family activities, nutritional education, and support for local nonprofit organizations.


Market Dates

The market will take place every Sunday, July 14-September 29 from 10:00 AM-2:00 PM on S Pearl Street in downtown Albany, in front of the MVP Arena (51 S Pearl Street). The market is free to enter and open to the public.
