Formed in 2001 by local growers, Finger Lakes Produce Auction, Inc., located in Penn Yan, New York is New York State’s first produce auction established to provide local growers, farmers and producers with the opportunity to bring their products to market using a fair competitive bidding strategy. The auction is currently managed by Ray Hoover and a Board of dedicated local farmers. Today the Auction has grown to become New York State’s largest produce auction.
