New York’s first cannabis farmers market will open on Thursday in the Hudson Valley, state regulators announced.
About one month after the Cannabis Control Board (CCB) started accepting applications for the new Cannabis Growers Showcases (CGS) program, regulators said in a press release on Wednesday that High Falls Canna has been cleared to launch this week and start serving adult consumers at an open market in New Paltz.
Licensed growers Queen Farms and Empire Farm 1830, as well as the retailer Legacy Dispensers, will also be on-site to sell their cannabis products. The farmers market will be open in the New Paltz municipal parking lot from 4-8 pm on Thursdays and Fridays and 1-8 pm on Saturdays. This will continue to place each week until the end of the year or a traditional retailer opens in the village.
A press conference is scheduled for Thursday to mark the first-ever opening, featuring the mayor and deputy mayor of New Palz, New York Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) staff, and cannabis business entrepreneurs.
