Voorheesville market brings farms to village

Luci touted the diverse selection of items available at the market, including cheese, tea, bread, dips, mixes, plants, fruits, vegetables and meat.

She said arts and crafts from members of the First United Methodist Church are also available for sale at the market.

Lyn MacIntosh, the proprietor of Curling Stone Farm, said she was interested in joining the market to help spread the word about her product.

"I know many people in Voorheesville, but not many people know us," MacIntosh said. "We're off the beaten path."

She said she offers plants, vegetables and herbs, and has "a lot to offer the community."

The market has been thriving, its participants said, and many are glad to have a market in Voorheesville.

"I think it's a great area," said Gretchen Geurtze, the proprietor of Geurtze Barbeque. "It's been very successful. There's very good produce there. It's a brand-new market and I think [Luci] is doing a great job.

Geurtze said she believes the diverse products and support from the community and parishioners at the First United Methodist have contributed to the market's success.

To make reservations with Geurtze Barbeque, call the church office at 765-2895 Tuesday through Thursday 9 a.m. to noon by Wednesday, Aug. 5.

"I hope that people will continue to support it because these people work really hard to bring us this local food," Luci said. ""
