Good news, Hudson Valley: this weekend is farmers' market weekend. Your moments of pining for fresh, local fruits and vegetables on a Sunday morning are over. Memorial Day weekend marks the opening of many area farmers' markets. The following open today, Saturday, May 25:

Millerton Farmers' Market hosts the opening day for its 7th season from 9am-1pm, and they'll have live music by Trio Candela, a chef demo with Tim Cocheo of No. 9 Restaurant, and live broadcasting by Robin Hood Radio.

The Kingston Farmers' Uptown Market celebrates its opening day with a vine-cutting ceremony at 10am, a plant giveaway by the Master Gardeners from Cornell Cooperative Extension, and face painting by Sunny Bel from the Hudson Valley Smile Factory. The Kingston Farmers' Midtown Market celebrates its opening day on Tuesday, May 28.

The Saugerties Farmers Market starts its 12th season with special offerings, like exotic mushrooms, smoked fish, home baked pies, and cut flowers, as well as farmers' market staples, like local produce, eggs, cheeses, meats, and artisan bread. There will be a ribbon cutting with Senator Tkaczyk, a chef demo by James Tamayo from the Inn at Tamayo, live music by Passero, a children's art space project, and free soil testing by the Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Master Gardeners.

The Pleasantville Farmers' Market opens for the season on May 25 for the first-ever summer market run by non-profit organization Foodchester. In addition to nearly 50 vendors, the market will also have 60 different events throughout the summer, including live music, kids’ activities, and sustainable programming.
