Farmers Market / Vendor Reservation
Seven years ago we launched a NY food and wine vendor area at the Genesee Valley Hunt Races after obtaining a Farmer’s Market Permit from NYS Dept. of Ag and Markets. It has been a huge success for vendors – and certainly appreciated by the crowds and tailgaters at this century-old, family oriented event! Our Farmers Market goes hand-in-hand with our Agri-Center, which features a petting zoo and interactive agricultural education activities. This area is always bustling with activity all day!
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
