SCHENECTADY — The Schenectady Greenmarket will remain outside Schenectady City Hall until Nov. 22 and will move inside Proctors for the winter starting on Dec. 6.

“Now more than ever, it is important to help ensure local residents have access to fresh, local and quality produce and continue to offer benefits for those in our community who face food insecurity,” said Haley Viccaro, chair of the Board of Directors for the Schenectady Greenmarket, in a statement.

“Schenectady Greenmarket will continue to follow all health and safety guidelines with our move inside, and we look forward to continuing to provide an essential service to Schenectady’s residents while helping to support local businesses and farms and help strengthen and grow our city.”

The market features more than 60 local vendors, offering everything from groceries to take-away meals to artisanal items. 

With the move inside Proctors, the Schenectady Greenmarket will have increased COVID-19 health and safety protocols. They will also be utilizing Proctors’ ventilation system (MERV 13) and enforcing social distancing among vendors and customers. 

The Schenectady Greenmarket runs from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Sundays. For more information on vendors and safety measures visit schenectadygreenmarket.com.
