Visiting the Beacon Farmers’ Market in Beacon

The fair Beacon Farmers’ Market takes place every Sunday on the riverfront of the Hudson River. It happens near the Beacon Train Station (Metro-North Railroad, you can catch the train at Grand Central Station, in NYC), which is the station of the museum Dia:Beacon. It’s worth to visit Dia:Beacon on a sunny Sunday and enjoy lunch at the market before going to the museum.

The products sold there are all local and everything seems to have great quality. During the winter, the market has another location; it does not happen on the dock in front of the river. I don’t advise you to go to Beacon just to visit the market, the event is relatively small, and it’s 1h20 away from New York, but the combo “Market + Museum” works perfectly, a great option for a pre-museum lunch.

Check it out: When we (two friends and I) went to Dia:Beacon, we found out about the market when we left the station. It was a great surprise because we got there exactly at lunchtime, thinking that we would have to eat at the museum cafe.
