NEW LEBANON — In this food desert in northeastern Columbia County, where the nearest proper supermarket is more than 10 miles away, the seasonal New Lebanon Farmers Market has expanded to include a year-round indoor operation featuring local fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy, baked goods, prepared foods and more. The indoor market, at 528 Route 20 in the village, is open noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday. The outdoor market, in the parking lot of the local Berkshire Bank branch (502 Route 20), is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday through the end of October. Both are run by volunteers.

The indoor market is available for in-person shopping and for online ordering, with pickup and delivery available. Check out the website for inventory and full details.

The indoor market was made possible by a low-interest loan to purchase refrigeration courtesy of Berkshire Agricultural Ventures, a not-for-profit dedicated to helping farmers and food makers in Columbia and Dutchess counties in New York, Berkshire County, Mass., and Litchfield County, Conn., according to Josh Young, director of the New Lebanon Farmers Market.
