Washingtonville Farmers Market Just Around the Corner

The Washingtonville Farmers & Artisans Market will start June 3 and will run through Oct. 28 every Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the parking lot at 29 West Main Street, where the veterans’ stones are.

Handled by Placemaking committee members Jess Kehlenbeck and Maaike Wiegman-Leavey, it will have mainstays from last year like local farms for organic meats and fresh seasonal vegetables, local honey and maple syrup, and about fifteen other offerings from artisans and craftspeople. Direct-sales vendors are also welcome. “We don’t turn anyone away who’s interested in joining,” said Kehlenbeck. “We want everyone, and have incentivized our full-season rates, half-season rates, and single day rates. The more people offering their goods, the better, so come on down!”

She also said there will be 4H activities as there has been interest from local moms to start a Washingtonville 4H chapter. “Those interested can definitely inquire further,” she said. Parents of young children are also encouraged to bring their children down for music and art activities. “We want parents to come, sit down and give lunch to the kids, and stay for the fun. Toato and pepper seedlings will also be given away for free on opening day, so if your kids like to plant, come on over and get them involved in gardening and horticulture.”

Kehlenbeck and Wiegman-Leavey can be contacted via email at washingtonvillemarket@gmail.com or through the market’s Facebook page “Farmers and Artisans Market of Washigtonville.”
