One of the things I love about summer is the fact that you can get locally grown, fresh vegetables, fruits, and homemade goods. There are many places in the Southern Tier and Northeast Pennsylvania to get whatever you need.

I can't get enough of locally grown strawberries, blueberries, and corn to name a few items you can find at a local farmer's market. Farmer's markets are located in several areas around the Greater Binghamton area, and one of them is the Broome County Regional Farmer's Market on Upper Front Street, Binghamton. It's the same place we hold our Job and Career Fairs (with one coming up Wednesday, August 24th.).

The market is open every Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm. According to the Broome County Regional Farmer's Market website, the Broome County Government and partners began to develop a concept plan in 2009 to find out the feasibility of a local farmer's market. The Broome County Farmer's Market became a reality with much support from area organizations and has been going strong ever since.

The American Farmland Trust and the Farmers Market Coalition are currently conducting a 2022 America's Farmer's Market celebration and are giving away $10,000 dollars to the nation's favorite farmer's markets. The winners will be determined through voting, and the Broome County Regional Farmer's Market is in the running.

As a matter of fact, as of July 20th, our local Farmer's Market is ranked 11th Nationwide, 4th in the Northeast U.S., and 2nd in New York State. Voting will continue until September 19th. You can get more information and vote for the Broome County Regional Farmer's Market through the American Farmland Trust website.
