Big Rock Market Hosts Outside Farmers and Makers Fair on April 24, 2021 in Stanfordville, NY

Big Rock Market

Big Rock Market, a farmers-market-type store located in the historic Campbell House, in the heart of Stanfordville, is one business that’s grown over the past year—a trend that has allowed it to lower its prices and carry a wider variety of produce, dairy, meat, baked goods and pantry items. As light appears at the end of the pandemic tunnel, Big Rock will celebrate on April 24 with a socially distanced Farmers and Makers Fair from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Adele Craven, general manager of Big Rock Market, says the event is an opportunity for people in the community to meet and talk with the farmers and makers who provide the store with fresh goods and crafts.

“You’ll learn about the other things these awesome community members do that you may not realize,” she says. “You can also pick up locally grown organic seedlings and flowers to start your garden.”

The fair will be held on the store’s front lawn. All Covid guidelines will be followed, and masks will be mandatory at all times, both on the lawn and in the store, which will be open its regular hours of 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Big Rock’s commitment to the community’s well-being likely comes as no surprise to its loyal customers, who frequent the store for its conscientiously sourced offerings. According to Craven, the store’s produce is local, organic and fair trade whenever possible; its dairy, meat and produce are carefully selected from Hudson Valley farmers; and its baked goods, pantry items, fresh-cut flowers and handmade crafts are staples in many up-state country homes.

 “Here at Big Rock, we support our local farms and our community by linking the two—and providing a nourishing environment for all,” she says.

Location: Big Rock Market’s Farmers and Makers Fair, 6031 NY Route 82, Stanfordville, NY. New store hours for 2021 are Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Monday and Wednesday from noon to 6 p.m.; Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.; and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more info call 845.868.3320 or visit
