With more than fifty produce dealers from across Central New York, the Downtown Syracuse Farmers Market has become a popular summer staple in Clinton Square. Local farmers sell mostly locally-grown fruits, vegetables, baked goods, wine, cheeses, and more, Market Director Chuck McFadden said.
“We run a number of programs, they were all so very popular that we decided to continue those and add some more,” he added.
Now in its 46th year, the annual market is a great way to connect with the farming community as well as other Central New Yorkers, Downtown Committee Executive Director Merike Treier said. The Onondaga County Public Library is also once again partnering with the farmer’s market to encourage buyers to not only shop local but to cook using recipes created by the Food Bank of Central New York. “They base [each recipe] on what’s in season during each week and it tells you what you can make with your fresh purchases,” she added
The Downtown Farmers Market runs every Tuesday, at Clinton Square from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. through early October. To learn more about the farmer’s market visit downtownsyracuse.com/farmersmarket
