Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The Regional Market is looking to make changes in order to make your shopping experience even safer.

The Regional Market has moved all operations outside, widened pathways, spaced out vendors and their leaving it up to the vendors themselves to place produce in your hands, so not everyone is touching your fruits and vegetables.

There’s also a push to buy local, so more people are turning to farmers markets for food.

Amanda Fitale, Regional Market’s Executive Director, said, “It’s been really great for our vendors because they have a lot of products that are hard to find in the grocery stores, so they’ve been able to fulfill those needs and help the community.”

Currently the Regional Market is only open on Saturday’s from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
