"It's a fun place to be on a Saturday morning," Tick said. "People can do their shopping but also bring their kids and not have to worry about their kids filling up on junk food."
The Delmar Farmers Market is supported in part by a bevy of local donors. For a full list and more information, visit www.delmarmarket.org.
Delmar United Methodist Church market
Already up and running is a weekly market held outside the Delmar United Methodist Church on Kenwood Avenue. Every Tuesday from 2:30 to 6 p.m., vendors will have a host of seasonal produce, plants and crafts. Additionally, Geurtze's Barbecued Chicken will be on hand every week. The market runs into the fall.
In Selkirk, the Bethlehem Grange will for the third year running present a Thursday farmers market, running from noon to 5 p.m. from now through Sept. 23.
The Grange doesn't officially line up vendors, said organizer Mary Starr, instead opening up the market for whatever vendors want to show up.
"We're trying to do it as a community service," Starr said. "They show up, and they can sell their things; we don't ask for anything."
The result is a diverse mix of products, from produce to needlework.
The Grange's farmers market is held at the Grange Community Center in Selkirk on Route 396, near the junction with Route 9W.
Voorheesville Farmers Market
Getting a later start is the Voorheesville Farmers Market at the Voorheesville United Methodist Church at 68 Maple Avenue.
This will be the market's second year, said organizer Dianne Luci, and already nearly all of last year's vendors have signed up to return, with the addition of many new offerings.
"It was fantastic, it really was great. ... We had really positive feedback," Luci said of the inaugural year. "Our downside was the weather."
