Downtown Farmers Market returns to Clinton Square with new live music series

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - The Downtown Syracuse Farmer’s Market returns on Tuesday in Clinton Square.

Nearly 50 of the area's farmers and produce dealers will be selling fresh, locally-grown fruits, vegetables, baked goods, wine, and more.

"It's nice seeing the people, you get your regular customers every year,” says Linda Hahn of Hahn Farms.

Despite being early in the season, you can find some locally grown produce like asparagus and tomatoes. You can also find plenty of people, out on their lunch breaks, buying produce, clothing, and everything in between. 

That includes baked goods. Owner of Zimmer’s Bakes, Tracy Zimmer, says, “It's a great outlet, if you don't have a storefront, to get your name out there, get people to try your product."

This year, the farmer’s market will feature a new “lunchtime live music series,” which will be held on selected Tuesday’s from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

If you’re looking for local, the Downtown Farmers Market is the place. Most products are grown or made in Central New York.

"Not only are you supporting someone you can actually physically see and talk to, but it just reinforces this really great community that we live in,” says Anna Gustafson of Hidden Hearts Honey.

Vendors add that what keeps them coming back is the atmosphere.

“We do a couple of other markets and we're happy with them, but the atmosphere down here, everybody seems to be pleasant and there's a lot of vendors down here selling different things and people seem to be enjoying themselves a lot,” adds Jim Malyinuk of Malyinuk Farms.

The Downtown Farmer’s Market runs every Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., rain or shine, until Oct. 10.
