Years ago, a public market took place across from Auburn City Hall. This summer, one will again.
The New York State Equal Rights Heritage Center has announced that it will host the Taste NY Auburn Regional Market beginning Saturday, June 8. The weekly public market, held in partnership with the state’s Taste NY program and Cornell Cooperative Extension, will take place inside and outside the South Street facility. It will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays through the end of October.
The center’s visitor experience manager, Courtney Kasper, said the market’s scope will be wider than that of a traditional farmers market. It will feature not only food producers, but artisans, food trucks, live music, demonstrations, family activities and more programming. The market builds on both the center’s permanent Taste NY market and its monthly Makers Mart programs, she added.
The Makers Mart program will continue Saturdays, April 27 and May 25, before the regional market begins.
