Each Sunday from 10AM - 2PM, vendors, shoppers, musicians and friends gather at the Schenectady Greenmarket and enjoy live music, kids crafts and over sixty vendors who produce everything they sell.
May - October: Outside City Hall
November - April: Inside Proctor’s Theatre
Free parking is available within walking distance of both City Hall (for the outdoor market, May - Oct) and Proctor’s Theatre (for the indoor market, Nov - Apr) in the Broadway parking garage, as well as in six surface lots. All lots are handicap-accessible.
Please note: On Sundays when Proctors is presenting a show, there will be a fee for parking in the lot directly behind Proctors (Clinton South lot). Schenectady Greenmarket customers may use this parking lot without charge until 12:30pm on these dates, after which standard parking rates apply.
All of our vendors accept cash, and many also accept credit and debit cards, if you don’t have cash you can purchase market tokens at the market table using credit, debit or EBT/SNAP cards.
Using market tokens:
$5 tokens may be purchased with credit or debit cards.
$1 tokens may be purchased with EBT/SNAP cards.
Market tokens never expire.
Cash is given as change, for $5 tokens. (Vendors cannot give tokens as change.)
Schenectady Greenmarket Tokens can only be used at Schenectady Greenmarket.
Fresh Connect Checks:
The Governor’s Office has sponsored a program for the past few years called Fresh Connect. For every $5 you purchase on your EBT/SNAP card, you receive a $2 coupon that can be used directly with vendors (for acceptable products) at the market. This program increases your purchasing power by 40%. For example, if you spend $10 in EBT, you’ll get an extra $4 in checks – giving you a total of $14 to spend at the market.
EBT/SNAP and Fresh Connects eligible products include:
fruits and vegetables
meat, fish and poultry
maple and honey products
seeds and plants which produce food
baked goods: wrapped, labeled and intended for home consumption
value-added foods, such as jams, sauces, soup mixes, etc.
Products which cannot be purchased include:
beer, wine or liquor
food meant to be eaten on site
vitamins and medicines
