DOUBLE UP FOOD BUCKS!
We are thrilled to announce a new matching program for SNAP (food stamp) purchases, organized by Field & Fork and funded by the Berkshire Taconic Foundation. Get more fruits and vegetables when you spend your food dollars at our market with Double Up Food Bucks!
For every $2 of SNAP EBT card dollars a customer spends at our market, customers get $2 of free Double Up Food Bucks to spend on any New York State-grown fruits and vegetables, up to $20 per market visit per day. Visit www.doubleupnys.com or stop by our market information table at your next visit for more information.

The former Copake Front Porch has changed hands and re-opened as the Copake General Store. Much of the “character” remains but there are many new, bright touches.
Of course, my first trip there included a quick check to see if any of the CHFM vendors were represented on the shelves. They were! More may be added over time, as the new owner settles into what her style is and what her customers want.
In the meantime, enjoy these product shots, most of which are our wonderful vendors.
