Localized Food

Placing the kitchen at the core of community food


January 2017

We're on the home run to finish renovations for 116 Main St to welcome the Philmont Market and Cafe as the anchor food business as a producer/consumer cooperative creating a sustainable 10 mile wheel of local farms and emerging food businesses serving the Philmont community with year-round fresh foods, a commerical kitchen, bakery, retail areas, and a cafe. 


  • Not-for-profit program individually designed to meet participants' needs and use of the kitchen equipment, prepping areas, and cold storage, operated by the Philmont Market & Cafe Co-op as the anchor business, including:

  • Shared-use food processing space available at below-market cost

  • Fully equipped commercial kitchen licensed to meet NYS Ag & Markets, and Columbia County Department of Health standards

  • Adequate dry, cooler, and freezing storage space
