The Downtown Jamestown Development Corporation has announced new operating hours for the weekly Downtown Jamestown Winter Market.
The market will remain open every Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Jan. 31.
"The market is going great but many downtown employees that would frequent the summer market are unable to attend during the evening hours," said Tiffani Conti, DJDC special projects manager. "We worked with the vendors and the suggestions we were receiving to decide on a new hours favorable to the community. We are all excited about the change and look forward to more community members continuing to have access to fresh, locally grown produce and handmade artisan products through the winter months."
Infusions, LLC, one of many vendors, located at the Downtown Jamestown Winter Market in the Dr. Lillian Vitanza Ney Renaissance Center every Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Jan. 31.
A free live canning demonstration will be provided during the next market from noon to 1 p.m. Sharon Reed will provide an informational seminar on the proper techniques to can local tomatoes and potatoes.
The demonstration is open to the public. Handouts will be provided.
"Preserving is an excellent way to save money and continue to enjoy a local harvest throughout the year," Mrs. Conti said. "Many people are unsure how to can and to some it may seem intimidating but this is a great opportunity to start learning how."
Metered parking is available along Foundry Alley and in the parking lot behind the Renaissance Center. Free parking is available in front of the Renaissance Center.
