A group of Johnsburg residents is working to bring the North Creek Farmers Market back this summer season. The market is set to be held Thursdays from 2 to 6 pm at Riverfront Park in North Creek, from June 21 through September 27, then on Columbus Day Weekend. It will be under and around the northern pavilion in Riverfront Park which is adjacent to the Depot Museum and train station.
Vendors that want to participate in the North Creek Farmers Market will have the option to purchase a space for the full 15 week season (June-Oct) for $100; participate in five market sessions for $50 or attend in one market for $15. Smaller producers will also be able share a booth.
The group is currently working on new signage, marketing, a new Facebook page and is looking for additional ideas to make the market vibrant and successful. On St. Patrick’s Day the group held a fundraiser at Basil & Wick’s in North Creek and raised over $500. The John Kehoe band donated their fee and tips to the market.
