New name and host for Lake Placid, Saranac Lake Farmers’ Markets

April, 2022

SARANAC LAKE — The weekly farmers markets in Lake Placid and Saranac Lake will continue to offer locally produced farm products and handmade goods — but under a new name and host organization.

The Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) announced that starting this month, it will provide organizational support for the two markets under the newly dubbed “High Peaks Farmers Market.”


ANCA will also hire a part-time manager to oversee the markets.

ANCA, a Saranac Lake-based economic development nonprofit that focuses on local food, small businesses, clean energy and the Adirondack Diversity Initiative, is currently seeking applicants for the new market manager position.

The application deadline is Friday, April 15, 2022.

“ANCA is thrilled to support members of the farmers market committee who have worked so hard over the years to make these two markets the invaluable community assets they are today,” ANCA Executive Director Elizabeth Cooper said.
