Seneca Falls Farmers Market to open on June 11th with new hours for 2019

Following an enormous outpouring of community support for an afternoon market, the Seneca Falls Farmers Market has announced new hours for the 2019 season.

The Seneca Falls Farmers Market will be open every Tuesday from 3pm – 7pm starting June 11th and will run through October 8th, rain or shine.

The market will again be held in People’s Park along the canal waterfront (15 Water Street by GPS) and will feature the largest number of local producers and artisans in the market’s history. From annual favorites to new arrivals, there is sure to be something for everyone at this open-air market.

A true local Farmer’s Market, fresh locally-grown produce loaded with “just-picked” flavor will be available…including tomatoes, asparagus, peppers, greens, squash, beans, onions, corn, fruits, and much more. Other local items like honey, maple syrup, farm-fresh eggs, lavender, fresh-cut flowers, maple-flavored treats, homemade baked goods, grass-fed beef, gluten-free goodies, delicious jams, and locally-roasted coffee will be on hand.

“The new afternoon hours will enable us to provide more families with access to fresh, local produce and treats,” says Greg Zellers, who returns as this year’s market manager. “Vendor space is completely sold out and I think people are going to love the variety. We have such an incredible group of local farmers, bakers, and artisans.”

Aside from fresh fruits, vegetables, and delectable treats, the market will also feature local craftspeople who carefully create home décor items, handmade jewelry, hand-poured candles, linens, and aromatic lavender-filled items.

Produce vendors will be accepting Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) coupons, which are available through the WIC Program and Office for the Aging if qualified.

The Seneca Falls Farmers Market is also able to accept Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) and SNAP when purchasing qualifying items at the market. For every $5 spent, EBT participants will receive an additional $2 coupon that is also good throughout the market.

A wide variety of BBQ lunch options will be available every market day from Martin’s Smokehouse BBQ with menu items such as pulled pork, brisket, ribs, chicken, mac ‘n cheese, and delicious sides. And for dessert, Sprinkle Starship will be parked by the gazebo offering ice cream treats and milkshakes.

Updated farmers market information, including the upcoming children’s program calendar, will be posted on the market’s Facebook page and website, which is available at senecamarket.com.
