There are many farms in the area and several of them bring fresh, organic produce to various farmer's markets. They deal with the weather and various creatures that may get the produce before you do so they can't promise to have any particular thing on any particular day, but they do promise that what they have will be fresh, tasty, and good for you. Here is a partial list of farms in the area, followed by a schedule for the various Farmer's markets in the county.
Flying Pigs Farm in Shushan features humanely raised rare heritage breed pork that tastes great and some chicken. Visit the website for ordering informaiton.

With over 10 vendors representing some of the best farmers and producers in Washington County and Vermont, the Salem Farmers’ Market is kicking off the season on Saturday, May 27, 2006. The Salem Farmers’ Market is a long-standing tradition in Salem, running nearly two decades, and is located at the Salem Village Park and gazebo on Main Street. Marking the start of the summer season, our regional farmers’ markets offer plenty of opportunities to obtain the best in locally-grown and produced seasonal fruits, vegetables, meat, pasture-raised poultry, eggs, artisanal cheeses, flowers, maple products, fibers, and specialty breads and pastries.
In a region where agriculture is the major industry, farmers’ markets bring quality products to the consumer practically every day of the week -- providing great tasting food with a higher nutritional value (not having traveled a few thousand miles to get to your table), allowing for more money to stay in the local communities, and offering increased employment opportunities which provides a regional economic benefit.
Other Memorial Day Weekend events include the Salem Volunteer Fire Department’s annual Chicken Barbeque and the annual Town-Wide Tag Sale.
The Chicken Barbeque takes place at Proudfit Hall from Noon to 2 pm; tickets ($8.00) may be purchased in advance at Salem Hardware, Main Street Diner, A & J Agway or from any Salem Firefighter.
For further information on Washington or Saratoga County Farmers’ Markets, call Paula Schafer of the Agriculture Economic Development Program, Cornell Cooperative Extension, at 518.746.2560 or 885.8995. Photo by Annette Neilson.
