Watkins Glen Farmers Market returns in May

The Watkins Glen Farmers Market will return to Lafayette Park for its sixth year.

The farmers market will be held every Friday beginning May 28 and will continue through Oct. 29, with the exception of the Friday of the Grand Prix Festival which will be held Sept. 10.

Vendors and local farmers will be at Lafayette Park, located on Fourth and Decatur Streets in Watkins Glen, from 3 to 7 p.m. selling a variety of local produce, prepared foods, wine and crafts

Some of the vendors will be at the park earlier than 3 p.m. to set up, so village residents are asked to remember to be aware of pedestrians and extra traffic on Fourth and Decatur Streets Fridays starting May 28.

For more information about the market call Lynn Gerry at 607-535-0147 or visit http://www.NOFA.org or http://www.localharvest.org for more information about local foods and organic farming.
