Now that spring is here, farmers markets will soon be up and running.
Becky Crawford with the Cornell Cooperative Extension said on Tuesday’s Finger Lakes Morning News many of the Cayuga County markets will be opening on June 2. Auburn’s market has been operating for more than 60 years, and you can use your food stamps benefits to buy locally grown items.
Jessica Soule from the Cayuga Community Health Network said the agency is concerned about the declining number of seniors using the SCAT van to get to the Auburn market.
In addition to Auburn, there are markets in Moravia, Owasco, Aurora, Niles and Port Byron, and a new market will be open on Mondays from 3 to 7 at the Presbyterian Event and Retreat Center at the Case Mansion on South Street in Auburn.
