Social, local shopping

"To me, the Schenectady Greenmarket is the friendliest atmosphere, it is for the purpose of the shopping, but it is really social," said Carenza. "We have made a number of really nice friends at that market. It is just a wonderfully social atmosphere. A lot of my customers now know each other. It is just really very friendly."

The market takes place every Sunday through October outside City Hall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and features vendors from within a 100-mile radius, music, food vendors, massage therapists, community experts, children's activities and cooking demonstrations.

Activities for the kick-off included music by The Slate Hill Band, an acoustic folk rock trio, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., followed by the Fairview Avenue from noon to 2 p.m. Family friendly activities included a Bouncy Bounce sponsored by the YMCA and Mr. Twisty. Other attractions were the First Annual Yoga Circus Day at the Community Table and children's activities presented by 4H of Schenectady.""
