How can Mohawk Valley residents shop local fresh from the farm?
The Mohawk Valley has a long history as an agricultural region going back even before the first settlers. The early expansion and development of farms throughout the Mohawk Valley region helped to supply food, grains, and other agricultural products to a growing nation. The completion of the Erie Canal opened up new westward markets and helped to bring crops and produce east to Albany, and then south down the Hudson River to New York City and beyond. Even today there are many opportunities for Mohawk Valley residents to shop local fresh from the farm.
