From mid-May through mid-October area farmers and artisans gather to share their creativity and bounty at the Pakatakan Farmers’ Market. Located at the historic Round Barn on Route 30 Halcottsville (approximately 5 miles north of Arkville/Margaretville) the market runs Saturdays from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
Since its inception in 1991, the market has consistently been a popular shopping and socializing spot for locals residents, weekenders and even celebrities from near and far.
Among the many products featured at the market (depending on the season) are goods that are grown on local, organic and sustainable farms and crate farms. Items offered include: pasture-raised meats, trout, cheeses, breads as well as bedding plants for your garden and patio. Locally made indoor and outdoor furniture is also offered.
The market is a great place to enjoy breakfast or brunch, as there are many food vendors and picnic tables. Artisans also sell jewelry, soaps, quilts, wool, wood products and more. There is a holiday market in November. The Pakatakan Farmers’ Market is held rain or shine. Out of consideration for everyone, dogs are not allowed at the market. As always, admission is free.
