Powers Farm Market has been a popular market and seasonal destination since our beginnings as a modest truck stand in the early 1960's. Today, Powers Farm Market is a thriving, beloved community landmark that has flourished throughout the years. Along with our top-quality Powers-grown produce, our Market is also famous for it's delicious baked goods, beautiful flowers and plants, and unique, one-of-a-kind gifts and treasures.
A little bit of history…
In the early-to-mid 1960s, with suburbia encroaching ever closer to the 180 acre dairy farm, Roger and Betsy Powers realized the viability of milking cows in Pittsford, New York would be coming to an end.
In 1966, a farm wagon laden with sweetcorn was towed to the current site on Marsh Road. Fresh, homegrown sweetcorn was an instant success, and in 1972, the first log structure was built.
Today, the dairy cows have been replaced with sheep, donkeys, alpacas, goats, chickens, and deer, which the public have access to at the Market. The cow pastures have been replaced by sweetcorn, pumpkins, asparagus, berries, sunflowers, and Christmas trees, all available at Powers.
The Farm Market supplements the Farm’s products with flowers, locally-crafted gifts and crafts, in-house baked goods, fresh produce from area farms, jams and preserves, hayrides, teepees, and farm activities.
Products and activities are orchestrated by family members Dan and Shawn Skelton, and Ned and Lisa Powers, seasonally helped by siblings, nieces, and nephews. Owners Roger and Betsy Powers stay involved.
