Farmers’ Market

 

The Ballston Spa Farmers’ Market is held during the summer on Thursdays from 3-6 pm and Saturdays, from 9 am-1 pm in Wiswall Park on Front Street in the heart of Ballston Spa’s downtown district.

The 2022 season will run from June 11-September 29, 2022. The markets have been serving the local community since 2003. Our mission is to bring together producers and consumers and to promote locally created products.

The market is still accepting vendors for the 2022 season.  New and returning vendors can fill out and submit an application:

2022 Ballston Spa Farmers’ Market Vendor Application and Market By-Laws

Vendors pay annual BSBPA business membership dues of $150 to participate in the market. If you are a returning vendor and already a BSBPA member, your dues renewal invoice will be sent to you on your anniversary month.  If you are a new vendor, after you submit your application, you can make an online dues payment or mail a check to BSBPA, PO Box 386, Ballston Spa, NY 12020.  Vendors are also required to submit a certificate of insurance naming the BSBPA as additional insured. 

In our recent BSBPA member survey, the farmers’ market was listed as one of the most popular events and “highest value to you as a member”.  

Our market committee is looking for volunteers who can be present at the start of each market to help facilitate any questions and concerns as vendors set up, unlock the portapotty, assist musicians with any set up/electrical power issues.  The time frame the volunteer would need to be present would be from a half  hour prior to the market starting time to about an hour into the market (e.g. Thursdays would be 2:30-4 pm, Saturdays, 8:30 am-10 am).  Volunteers would sign up for specific market dates and will be trained with all information and details they will need.  The more volunteers we have, the more we can spread the task around so that not just a handful of people take on the whole season.  It’s a great way to get to know and support the vendors and get in some “early bird” market shopping!  Most importantly, your help will assure that the Ballston Spa Farmers’ Market will continue to be a presence in our village. If you can help, please contact farmers’ market chairperson Nora Osuchowski at nora@ballston.org to find out more.

For more information on the market, or any questions, contact us at farmersmarket@ballston.org  or contact the BSBPA office at info@ballston.org, 518 885-2772.
