NORTH CREEK - There's a new farmers market in town, and it's scheduled to open for the first time on Thursday, June 11 from 4 p.m.-7 p.m. at the Upper Hudson River Railroad pavilion in downtown North Creek.
Vendors from all over the North Country are coming together to bring farm fresh produce, flowers and perennials, baked goods, confections, maple syrup, crafts and so much more to residents who demand locally produced food and goods.
"I've attended conferences all over the state to bring ideas back to the board on how we are going to make this market one of the best in upstate New York," Barbara Thomas, president of the NCFM Association and market manager said.
This is not your average farmers market. In addition to having approximately a dozen vendors on any given week, there will be musical acts, face painting, market bags, craft demos and more as the summer progresses.
"The timing couldn't be more perfect. The scenic railroad pulls into the station shortly after 4 p.m. on Thursdays allowing many people to take advantage of all this market has to offer. It's yet another thing we can offer to residents and tourists alike," Michelle San Antonio, vice president of NCFM Association said.
Anyone wishing to have a booth at the market for the whole season, which will run Thursdays from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. June through October - or part of the season - should visit northcreekfarmersmarket.com to download an application and fee schedule.
