Founded in 2002, the Clarence Hollow Farmers’ Market is New York State’s only “Rails to Trails” Farmers’ Market. Our market is run through a 100% volunteer effort and is both well regarded in the community and a popular destination in Western New York. The market season runs from June through October, and at the height of the season, supports over 30 weekly vendors - including both produce and speciality vendors. Visit our Market History page to see how far we've come!
The Market’s mission is four-fold: To provide our community with access to healthy, fresh and locally produced foods and other specialty products; to raise awareness of local food production and distribution; to support our local farmers and the “100 Mile Diet;” and to build our community by bringing people together in an open and engaging atmosphere.
To support the events and activities presented each year, the Market does fundraising - through both direct fundraising events and personal and corporate sponsorships. The Market also offers a unique fundraising opportunity for non-profit organizations through our Market Bucks Program. Each book of 5 "Market Bucks" sold earns your group $1 and make great gifts for family and friends. Contact us for more information on how this program can benefit your organization. And visit our Events and Acknowledgements pages for more information on the Market's fundraising efforts.
Lil Sprouts Program
The Clarence Hollow Farmers’ Market launched our Lil Sprouts program in June 2010 to introduce children to the Market, our local farmers and specialty vendors. Our primary goal is to offer activities that provide some level of education about farming, nature and nutrition or that tie into one of the special events we have going on at the Market for that week. Some examples of last year’s activities include story-telling, spring flower seed pots, learning to make homemade fertilizer for house plants, and fun-based activities like face-painting, chalk art, hooping, and other craft projects. Visit our Lil Sprouts page or our Events page for weekly activity listings.
Animal Rescue Groups
Each week the market features a local non-profit group that is working to help rescue, rehabilitate and/or place cats, dogs or other animals. Through their participation at the Market, they are able to educate the public on their agency, run a fundraising activity, and find visitors who may be interested in adoption or volunteer opportunities. Watch our Events page for a weekly listing of visiting groups.
Business of the Week
In an effort to help promote our local businesses, the Market features one business a week - to setup and share information on their products and services, sell products or offer demonstrations. If you are a local business and would be interested in this option, please contact us for more information.
Community Service Tables
