The Windmill MarketLocal Area Attraction
Welcome to The Windmill Farm & Craft Market. The Windmill is the first and friendliest farm and craft market in upstate New York, located right in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Region. Midway between Penn Yan and Dundee on NY Route 14A, The Windmill has become a premier tourist attraction, with a weekly attendance exceeding 8,000 - 10,000 people.
In 1978, Bill and Ruth Gunderman, and Pat Gunderman and her husband, Ron Nissen took a trip to Ephrata, Pennsylvania, to visit a farm market. They were enamored with the concept and decided that one day they would attempt to create a similar market in Yates County.
Beginning with roughly 100 vendors, The Windmill serves as an outlet for local producers and craftsmen. Now in its 28th year, The Windmill plays host to nearly 200 shops, you're sure to find something for everyone. Many folks start the day at The Windmill with a hearty breakfast, pick up some fresh produce then set out to explore the many shops. Later, take in a free show, and have a relaxing lunch in our mini pine tree forest.
