Farmers Market / Vendor Reservation
The Genesee Valley Hunt Races provide an opportunity for local crafters, food and beverage vendors, and artisans to showcase their items, educate their customers about their business, and offer items for sale. Our aim is to offer high quality goods to the general public as well as to the crowds of tailgaters that attend this century-old, family-oriented event. Our designation as a New York State Farmers Market goes hand-in-hand with our Agri-Center, which features a petting zoo and interactive agricultural education activities. This area is bustling with activity all day! The Genesee Valley Hunt Races are a great way to celebrate all the unique items that are produced by our local community. We hope you’ll join us!
We think this event offers the perfect demographic for your products!

NY Craft Beverage Producers Welcome!
NYS Ag & Markets Farmers’ Market designation enables NY wineries to sell NY labeled wine by the bottle. (Wineries are no longer required to obtain a “no fee” permit from the SLA). New York’s craft beverage industry has grown to more than 1,000 producers, including more than 400 farm, micro and restaurant breweries, and 132 farm distilleries – 104 of which have been added since 2012. Additionally, the state ranks first in the U.S. for the number of hard cider producers, second in craft distillers, third in breweries, and fourth for the total number of wineries. NY “craft breweries” (producing 60, 000 barrels/year or less) can sell their beer by the bottle at bona fide farmers’ markets. Please bring any applicable permits with you to the GVH Races.
Special Discount for Farm Bureau Members
The local county chapters of NY Farm Bureau have partnered with us in organizing the Agri-Center. In appreciation, we are offering Farm Bureau members who feature home-grown or home produced products a $30 discount off their space in the Farmers Market
