The ongoing effort to establish a public, indoor, year-round market in Manhattan is alive and well, and this Sunday will gather a merry medley of regional food producers, purveyors, distributors, and supporters. Butchers and cheesemongers, bakers and foragers, chefs and farmers, picklers and ice cream makers will come together to celebrate the abundance of our region, the bounty of early summer. Arriving from a region extending from Quebec to the Fingerlakes to Southern Virginia, they will offer meats and cheeses, honey and fresh produce, preserves, foraged mushrooms, and their finest attempt at “the perfect loaf.” Organizations working to support sustainable agriculture will be represented and joined by photographers, filmmakers, and the most eager young advocates of our nation’s rising agricultural movement.
The Market will take place
Sunday, June 29th from 11am to 4pm at the New Market Square.
Everyone: Come! The more the merrier!
