Local Summer Farmers Market Takes Root at New Location; Begins in May

Jumpin’ Zach Flash, Oldiez 96.1

I am a huge fan of farmers markets. I have been to many farmers markets stretching from Utica to Rochester, and everywhere in between. It’s always a good day when there is time to stop at a farmers market. And, speaking of a good time to go to a farmers market–mark your calendars for Sunday, May 19  because that’s when the Westmorland Summer Farmers Market begins, according to the market’s Facebook page. In addition, the market will be at a new location this year.

Again, according to the Westmoreland Summer Farmers Market Facebook page, the market will be happening at Seymour’s Diner on Route 233 in Westmoreland–a new spot from last year’s summertime event.

If you’re a vendor interested in the market, the market’s Facebook page says,

“Vendor Applications are due by April 1st or if you are a vendor at the Westmoreland Winter Farmers Market you can turn them in on April 6th – at the last winter market”

Denise and Bernie Szarek are the managers of the farmers market. And, if you would like to be a vendor at the market, Denise says to message her through the market’s Facebook page for an application. The booth fee is $75.00 for the season. The money raised by booth fees will go to the Westmoreland Volunteer Fire Department.

Denise Szarek mentioned some expectations for vendors. “We are a producer only market, and expect that 50 percent of all produce is farmer grown. All crafter and artisan products must be 100 percent hand made by the artisan.”

The first Westmoreland Summer Farmers Market of the season will take place Sunday, May 19 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. rain or shine. The summer market will go through October.
