Farmers’ Market returns Friday

Potter County Farmers Market returns on Friday, May 26, from 1-5 pm with ambitious plans for its four-month run.

Upwards of a dozen vendors are signed up to sell locally produced fruits and vegetables, baked goods, jams, jellies, maple products, alpaca products, trees, vines, plants and craft items. They’ll set up in downtown Coudersport at the East Second and North East Street intersection, across from the Potter County Jail.

New this year will be cooking demonstrations and nutrition programs presented by Penn State Extension, live music on some Fridays, a sales booth and exhibit by the Northcentral Pa. Beekeepers Assn., and occasional agricultural-related presentations by local 4-H members.

The market has enabled producers to work together to overcome expensive and timeconsuming challenges such as marketing. While consumer interest in local foods has increased in recent years, many are still not aware of the availability of naturally grown and organic produce in the area. Organizers are out to change that.

Women, Infants, Children vouchers and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks are accepted.

Any interested farmer is encouraged to call 814-274-8004 for additional information.
