In an effort to increase access to fresh, locally-grown foods, Catskill Mountainkeeper is managing a new farmers’ market that is going through its’ first full season this summer. Beginning in July, the market is Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) approved, which means that all of the farmers and producers are eligible to accept vouchers – both WIC and Senior – from recipients and redeem them for cash.

The market is located across from the Government Center in Monticello in the Ted Stroebele Recreation Center lawn, and coincides with the issue times for the FMNP vouchers, which are picked up by recipients just across the street in the Government offices.

When: Every other Monday 11:00 am – 2:00 pm (July 1- Oct. 21) – remaining markets on 9/23; 10/7; 10/21
Where: Ted Stroebele Parking Lot (across from Government Center) – 2 Jefferson St., Monticello, Ny
What: fresh fruits and vegetables, flowers, coffee, pickles, preserves, maple syrup, honey, and other locally produced value-added products
Participating Farms:
 - Root ‘N Roost Farm (White Sulphur Springs)
 - Trapani Farms ( Milton)
 - Big Eddy Farmstand (Narrowsburg)
Additional Info: This market is FMNP (Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program) approved. All participating vendors are approved to accept FMNP vouchers (WIC Fruit and Vegetable and Senior)
