Transition Troy

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.  

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.

We are the Sustainability booth at the Troy Waterfront Farmer’s Market

We are here every Saturday 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM all year round.
