THE FARMERS MARKET

FARMERS MARKET VENDORS MEETING

TUESDAY, MARCH 21ST – SEASON BEGINS MAY 13th

Think Spring! The Alden Farmers’ Market is planning its 15th season!  An informational meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 21st, 7 p.m. at the Community Center, 13116 West Main Street in the Alden Town Park.  Vendors, potential vendors, and interested citizens are invited to attend.  Complimentary light food and drink will be available. Vendor Rules & Regulations, Applications, and other information will be on hand and questions and suggestions are welcomed!  

The Market will open for the 2017 season on Saturday, May 13th, the day before Mother’s Day.  That date will feature a craft show, early plants and flowers and specialty vendors, as well as our season vendors:  Kate’s Country Cousins, wine tasting from Leonard Oakes Estate Winery and homemade sausage from Hanzlian’s Sausage.   While space is limited, new vendors are welcome. Vendors may come for just one or two Saturdays, or for the full season.  Rates are $25 per day for occasional vendors and we also offer a low seasonal rate.   Vendors must have insurance and all necessary permits.  

There will again be two “big basket” raffles.  We invite all local businesses to participate by providing gift certificates or donating items for the baskets; basket contributors are listed prominently.  It’s a simple way to advertise your business to the many people who come to the Market each week.

As in past years, the Market also will feature entertainment and special events every week.  Non-profit groups will sell coffee, soda and snacks the entire season.  Alden-area community groups are encouraged to sell food and/or have information tables at the Market.  The Market is sponsored by the Alden Chamber of Commerce and run entirely by a volunteer committee.  Do you like meeting and talking with people? Volunteers are always needed and appreciated; come join our Market family! To find out how you or your group can participate, please contact the Chamber of Commerce office at 937-6177 or by email at secretary@aldenny.org.

The Market is located between Tractor Supply and Save-a-Lot in the Alden Village Plaza at 13119 Broadway.  It will be open every Saturday from 8:30am to 1:00 pm, through October 14th.  The complete Calendar of Events will be available on the Chamber’s web site www.aldenny.org by late April.
