Food scrap collection for composting is still happening outside the 4th Street Atrium entrance Saturdays, 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

Many of the regular Farmers Market farms and vendors are offering alternative ways to get their products at farm stands, other locations, or delivery.



The Troy Waterfront Farmers Market is going GREEN

The Market is supporting the City of Troy ordinance passed in 2019 and the New York State law that go into effect March 1, 2020.   

Vendors at the Market will no longer provide single use plastic carryout bags.  Instead, people will be encouraged to bring their own reusable bags or purchase them at the Market table.  Paper carryout bags may be provided for a minimum 5-cent fee.   Current list of approved containers for the Farmers Market.

Food served for on-site consumption will be in compostable or re-usable containers.  Beverage straws given out will be compostable, with plastic straws available on request only.  See more information.

solid waste at the Market is now mostly compostable food scraps and containers. Less to the landfill and less single use plastic.
