Voorheesville Farmers’ Market opens on June 17

VOORHEESVILLE — The 12th season of the Voorheesville Farmers’ Market located at 68 Maple Ave. in Voorheesville will open Wednesday, June 17, with the hours of 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.

“With the COVID-19 pandemic swirling around our world and interrupting life as we’ve always known it, it was doubtful whether there’d be a market,” said organizer Dianne Luci. “But New York State has deemed farmers’ markets essential businesses.

“That being said, there have been restrictions placed on what can be sold. Currently only food, produce, meat, and soap are allowed. There can be no music or crafters.

“Masks and social distancing are a must and there will be a person at the lower parking-lot entrance and also our Maple Avenue entrance providing masks if anyone comes without a mask. We also have hand sanitizer available for public use.

“Look forward to seeing everyone and thank you for your continued support.”

The following vendors will attend:

— Carr’s Creek Soap;

— Buhrmaster Farm-Produce;

— Euro Delicacies-Take out;

— Fort Hunter Farms-Produce;

— Glen Glade Farm-Bread;

— Sweet T-Cookies, Muffins and Cupcakes;

— Mission Table-drinks and packaged coffee;

— Mountain Winds Farm-Maple Syrup products;

— Partridge Run Farm and Apiary-Honey; and

— Worldlings Pleasure-Cheese Spread.
