Seneca Falls Farmers Market
9:00 AM - 1:30 PM
Seneca Falls Farmers' Market
Wednesdays from 9AM-1:30PM at People's Park in Seneca Falls
Greetings!
 
Come and see how much your local market has grown!  We are not wrapping vendors around the gazebo!  Come down to People's Park in Seneca Falls tomorrow (Wednesday, July 6th) for the  Seneca Farmers Market.  Support local businesses and local agriculture!  We'll be there 9AM to 1:30PM for you to buy fresh produce and other great local items like honey, maple syrup, eggs, maple flavored popcorn, baked goods, grass fed beef, free range chicken, plants, jams and jellies and handmade items. 
 
One of our newer vendors is NY Nitro Coffee, the first to bring nitro coffee to the Finger Lakes region. Nitro coffee takes cold brew coffee a step further by putting it into a keg, infusing it with nitrogen, and serving it through a nitro tap like beer. The result is a naturally sweet and creamy coffee drink that looks identical to Guiness Stout when poured with cascading bubbles and a frothy head. It is calorie-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and vegan-friendly. Nitro coffee is served ice-cold and customers can enjoy the arabica flavor straight out of the tap or may add a flavor shot from an assortment of choices, including caramel, hazelnut, & vanilla bean.  Sounds perfect for a hot day!
Great, local, just picked produce including berries, summer squash, beans, peas, cucumbers, tomatoes and much more.  Baked goods include homemade breads, sticky buns, whoopie pies, cupcakes (gluten free too!) and muffins. Come and meet the people who grow the food you buy!
 
If you're hungry, come enjoy a meal in the shade at the picnic tables in the park.  Uncle Chunkies and Tastes of Wine Country will be serving lunch throughout the market day.  Come and enjoy a Hoffman hot, hamburger or sausage and some mac salad and a cold drink or a fresh sandwich on whole grain bread with side salads.
 
Besides the abundance of fresh, just picked veggies and fruits don't forget about the handmade jewelry, vintage lavender filled linens, Watkins products, plants in pretty pots, and many other baked goods.  Many of your old favorite vendors will be there as well so come and see what new things they have grown or made for this season.
 
And tomorrow a representative from the Office for the Aging will be in the park to start giving out senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons!  That's right, if you are a resident of Seneca County, 60 or over and meet the income guidelines (which are very generous so come down and check it out) you will receive a free $20 worth of coupons to spend on local fruits and vegetables!  And if there are two people in the same household, for the first time this year BOTH people can get $20. 
 
Come and use your EBT card and buy anything the vendors are selling that is food stamp eligible.  The FreshConnect Program is back this season!  For every $5 of SNAP benefits a person uses, they will receive a $2 coupon to use at the market on any food stamp eligible items.  So if you use $10 of your food stamps you will receive $4 Free!  Stretch your food dollars with local foods!

Come and see all the new vendors we've added this season and visit with the regular vendors you've come to know over the past few seasons.  
 
The market would not be possible without the support of the Seneca Falls Development Corporation and the Town of Seneca Falls.  Thank you to them for helping support local products and businesses!
 
See you in the Park!
 
(We will only email you once a week as a reminder to shop the market but please reply to this email to opt out of the update.)

Treasure Island
7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

TREASURE ISLAND, A New Musical

A modern, compelling look at the classic adventure…

In 2008, Wall Street told a story of greed, corruption and betrayal.  In 1883, Robert Louis Stevenson told the same story.  This is a new take on the classic tale – a high-stakes adventure for adults and children alike.  TREASURE ISLAND re-examines the essence of heroism, the journey to maturity and the strength of the human spirit in the face of extreme conditions.
