ORANGE COUNTY, N.Y. (March 3, 2016) – It may still be chilly outside, but local fruits, vegetables and specialty products are still available inside the barns of Orange County’s farms. These indoor farmer’s markets offer hardy vegetables and fruits, as well as other specialty items like New York maple syrup, jams and jellies, cider and baked goods. Some Hudson Valley farms even host farm-to-table events.
“You don’t have to wait until summer to enjoy fresh, locally grown produce,” said Orange County Tourism Director Susan Hawvermale. “Stop by one of our many indoor farm markets and taste why local is better.”
