Locally-grown food is key
The tradition of farmers markets is going strong in Lake Placid. Each farmers market in the region has a variety of vendors selling local produce, fresh bread, eggs, meat, cheese, plants, herbs, handmade jewelry, yarn, artwork, and more.
Tour the farms
Many travelers are surprised to learn that the Adirondacks are rich in farmland. From grass-fed beef to organic cheeses, mountain potatoes to fresh vegetables, hit the road, tour our farms, and bring a taste of the Adirondacks home with you. Last year one of our dairy-lovin' bloggers went on the annual Essex County Cheese Tour, check out her story and plan your own trip!
Forest-to-table and farm-to-table tradition
Many of Lake Placid's restaurants offer specialty menus featuring locally grown and produced goods, allowing visitors to experience a taste of the Adirondacks. From locally-harvested fish to grass-fed beef and fresh vegetables to seasonal fruit, the farm-to-table tradition is found throughout the High Peaks region.
