THE FARMERS MARKET

STILL TIME FOR THE FARMERS' MARKET

 

The 13th season of the Alden Farmers’ will close in a few short weeks on Saturday, October 10th, but there is still time to stop out and take advantage of locally grown summer produce, purchase perennial plants for fall planting, and stock up on items for the winter.  The Chamber table has great spices for all your grilling marinades, party dips, and hearty fall soups and stews.  Keep those allergies in check and purchase some local honey products as well as pure maple syrup for weekend big breakfasts.  Colder weather brings dry skin so be sure to check the organic soaps and lotions vendor.  Tailgating season is beginning and there is fresh, homemade sausage in many varieties available, barbecue sauces, as well as pierogis, all perfect for game day.  Warm days and cooler nights are ideal for relaxing next to the fire with a glass of wine from our wine vendors; be sure to buy extra for the upcoming holidays!  For those with a sweet-tooth, fresh baked goods and homemade fudge are also available on a weekly basis.

This is the third year for the Chamber’s popular raffle of a beautiful 8 x 12 Amish-made shed.  Raffle tickets are just $2 each or three tickets for $5.  The winning ticket will be pulled on October 10th---the Market’s closing day.  You could be the winner, but you have to be in it to win it! So be sure to stop at the Chamber table, check out the shed, and purchase a chance.  The second basket of Alden-area gift certificates will be raffled off on closing day as well.  Basket raffle tickets are only $1 each and are still available at Farmers’ Market Chamber table, the Alden Chamber of Commerce Office, the Alden Pharmacy, and the Alden Advertiser.

Special events continue with Meet the Candidates Day September 5th, Community Organizations’ Day September 12th, Fire Safety Day September 19th and Health and Wellness Day rescheduled to October 3rd.  Check the Alden Chamber of Commerce website for a complete list of events.   The Market will close on October 10th with a Chamber hot dog roast for all members---Sahlen’s dogs grilled to perfection by Market Manager Earl Gillen--and a Harvest Festival costume parade for kids and pets!

We are thankful to the plaza owners and neighbor tenants for all of their support as well as the many returning vendors, one-time vendors, Chamber volunteers, and of course, the customers! The Alden Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Market and Chamber members volunteer to keep it running every Saturday morning from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Help is always welcomed and appreciated for set-up, tear-down, and food sales.  Alden is a WIC-approved Farmers’ Market.  For information on the Market or becoming a vendor, please call the Chamber office at (716) 937-6177 or stop by the Chamber table at the Market.  See you there!
