During the late summer/fall months, the hamlet is busy once again, due to "pumpkin pickers" and "wine tasters", and other tourists taking in the beautiful fall scenery Jamesport has to offer. Jamesport is home to many farms including sod, pumpkin, flower, potato and wineries. Also Jamesport is home to the newest New York State park, Jamesport State Park.
