The North Creek Farmers Market (NCFM) officials are excited to be partnering with the Adirondack Tri-County Nursing & Rehabilitation Center to offer its locally produced foods and goodies in a more convenient location. Shoppers and vendors can now access the market directly from Route 28, on the health center’s lawn.
The NCFM season starts on June 20, continuing every Thursday 3-6 p.m. through Oct. 3. Market shoppers should look for both returning and new vendors including Juniper Hill Farm, Colebrook Country Wines, Barkeater Chocolates, Saratoga Apple, Adirondack Gold Maple Farm, Poeima Home, Maple Grove Farm, North Country Arts Center, Hidden Hollow Maple Farm, Rogers Rustic, Donna’s Stuf’t Pretzels, North Creek Designs, and Wevertown Country Store. North Creek offers a producer-only market, meaning that the goods are grown or made solely by its vendors.
The nursing home welcomes market-goers to enjoy its landscaped gazebo while listening to the live entertainment that the market regularly provides. Rain or shine, the NCFM will provide shoppers a weekly opportunity to support local growers, specialty food vendors, and area artisans.
Opening day will offer complimentary reusable NCFM shopping bags to the first 50 attendees and live music from Vinnie Leddick. June 20 is a Third Thursday Art Walk, and market visitors are also encouraged to visit the numerous nearby businesses hosting artists that evening.
Another enjoyable way to support the market’s initiatives is by attending its annual brunch, scheduled for Sept. 8 at Gore Mountain. It will feature market ingredients used by local chefs to provide a unique tasting event from the area’s restaurants, and includes a scenic Northwoods Gondola skyride.
