Long Island, NY - January 31, 2015 - Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that winter farmers’ markets in New York have again reached an all-time high, now with 120 markets located across the state.

“Buying New York products helps New York farmers, and strengthens this state’s agriculture industry – something that becomes even more important in the winter months,” Governor Cuomo said. "I encourage all New Yorkers to find a winter farmers' market and plan a visit.”
The number of winter farmers markets in New York State has grown 198 percent since the 2007 season.
State Agriculture Commissioner Richard A. Ball said, “More and more consumers are embracing New York agriculture as a year-round business, which is tremendously beneficial to our farmers and producers. Through initiatives such as the Governor’s Taste NY program as well as winter farmers’ markets, it is now easier than ever for New Yorkers to support this huge sector of the economy.”
