TROY — Fresh vegetables, homemade treats, and warm, sunny Saturday mornings are right around the corner as we draw closer to the start of the 2016 Downtown Troy Farmers Market.
Troy Main Street Inc. is pleased to announce the return of its successful summer market for a sixth season and reveals extended market dates and hours. The market will begin on Saturday, June 11 and will run through Oct. 8 on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Kelly Snyder is returning in her role as the market manager for 2016 and is looking forward to another great farmers market season. The Downtown Troy Farmers Market is currently accepting vendor applications and anticipates a packed venue.
Troy Main Street’s Director of Marketing and Events Stephanie M. Silk states, “The Downtown Farmers Market has become a Saturday morning staple in our beautiful downtown. It is not only a place to find locally grown produce and homemade wares, but is a place to mingle with friends and family! My family looks forward to the market each weekend and we truly enjoy discovering the wide variety of vendors on Cherry Street, and spending a morning in our unique downtown, supporting our friends and neighbors.”
The market features fresh local produce, breads, artisan cheeses, maple syrup, honey, baked goods, locally-raised meat, artists’ booths, live music, other entertainment, and much more. The location on South Cherry Street, just off West Main Street, is convenient for shoppers with adjacent parking. Vendors are treated to plenty of shade and can sell from their vehicles, making it both convenient and comfortable.
