To market, to market

In addition to vegetables, meats, cheeses, jellies, plants and baked goods, the market will this year feature takeout meals from places like Geurtze Chicken BBQ and Pie in the Sky, to name a few. Cornell Cooperative Extension will provide periodic soil testings and musical acts are lined up on a majority of dates.

Luci has already signed up most of the vendors the location can hold, but there are still a few spots left. She can be reached at 765-4536.

She said while the event might be a bit smaller than markets closer to the city, it has a definite charm.

"The thing that excites me most is seeing the camaraderie between not just the vendors, but all the people," she said. "Voorheesville is a small community ... and it's a high for me to see people coming together and just catching up with people they don't see all the time."

The Voorheesville Farmers Market will take place Fridays from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m., June 18 to Oct. 1.

Altamont Farmers Market

For those who need a farmers market fix multiple times a week, the Altamont Farmers Market runs six days out of seven.

Starting the first Saturday in July, the market will run every day except Wednesday at the train station adjacent to Orsini Park.

Altamont Orchards will set up shop every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., but on Saturdays the market expands to include several other vendors with jams, eggs, meats and breads.

"It's not a large market, it's just very simple," said organizer Linda Cure. "We have anywhere from four to five vendors."

Cure works in the Town of Guilderland parks and Recreation Department. The town and village jointly sponsor the event.

The market runs 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The market's fifth season will run until mid-to-late September.""
