Meat at the market is new to some folks. Our vendors offer some of the highest quality meat you can find anywhere. Sweet Tree Farm raises grass-fed beef, pastured pork and pastured chicken. Mariaville Angus has grass-raised, grain finished beef. All of these animals are humanely raised, traceable (you will buy directly from the farmer) and local, local, local! (Mariaville Angus is right here in Schenectady County.)
