A new farmers market will open in Jamestown on July 11. Locally grown fruits and vegetables, fragrant herbs and grass-fed beef are just a few of the items that will be for sale at the Jamestown Community Farmers Market. The new market will be located in the lot next to the Noe Place Convenience Store and Sunoco gas station at 712 E. Second St. in Jamestown. The market will be open for business every Wednesday from 2 to 6 p.m. through Oct. 31. Busti Cider Mill and Small Meadows Farm will be participating in the market.
"The Jamestown Community Farmers Market will provide access to Chautauqua County's finest produce in a convenient location on Jamestown's eastside. Working with local farmers to create a new farmers market will provide an additional opportunity for neighbors, employees, restaurants, and organizations to increase access to the bounty of the area while providing farmers with another market option. The theme of the market - From Our Farms to your Tables - highlights the connection between our local farmers and the dinner tables of our families" commented Janet Forbes, Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work and Play Project Coordinator.
Creating Healthy Places is a project funded by the New York State Department of Health and is administered by the Chautauqua County Health Network.
Christina King, market manager, said, "We are very excited to be opening in the midst of the growing season and look forward to offering delicious locally grown and raised foods to our customers." The market is accepting a variety of payment options including cash, EBT, SNAP, credit, debit and Farmers Market Nutrition Program WIC and Senior vouchers.
