Green Initiatives

Our Farmers Market understands the importance of protecting and nourishing the environment especially as climate change continues to impact various ecosystems around the world. A part of our goal is to educate and encourage our West Point & Highland Falls community to go green by promoting small steps that anyone can take. Small changes add up to make a big difference. Support our Farmers Market & the Planet!

Plant Swap Event

Join us on Sunday Sept. 22nd and bring your indoor or outdoor plants to swap your plant with someone else. This is great way for experienced & amateur gardeners to meet and share a passion for growing.

 

Recycling

Help your community reduce plastic and metal waste by bringing your bottles & cans to our Farmers Market. This will also help raise funds for our local non-profit community center: The Center of Highland Falls.

 

Composting

Reduce food waste by bringing your collection of vegetable scraps or other (non-meat, non-dairy) to our Farmers Market where we will add it to the compost pile at the Community Garden at Holy Innocents Church to help their plants grow.

 

Gardeners Event

Join us on Sunday Sept. 22nd to learn how to create & maintain your own garden from the expertise of Master Gardeners who have been a part of the Cornell Cooperative Extension Program. 

Reuseable Bags

Have a collection of reusable bags that you don't need? Bring them to the Farmers Market to donate them to those in need as we all get ready for the statewide plastic bag ban. Our Market Tote Bags will also be on sale.
