It is getting to be that time of year again, yes, time for thinking about gardening and going to your local farmers market.
The first market I must tell you about is the indoor one being held at Alpin Haus on Saturday, April 17. For more information, please contact your local Cornell office in Johnstown.
I myself, Curdie Gardner, manage the two outdoor markets, and I am pleased to tell you that they are coming up soon. The market in Gloversville opens on Saturday, May 1, at 8 a.m. and goes until noon. So join us, won't you, for some fresh greens, lettuce, homemade breads, a variety of annuals and perennials, and more. I really can't wait, as I have been writing about the market all winter and now here it is finally time. Don't forget, the market is held in the same place as last year, the pavilion behind Main Street, off of Church Street.
The Johnstown market opens on Tuesday, May 25 at 3 p.m. and goes until 6. We are located in the same place as last year, in the parking lot of the Old Johnstown Hotel on Main Street. Look for our new signs.
The Gloversville market will have entertainment on most Saturdays, and our schedule will be posted on our new Web site, www.fultonmontgomeryfarmersmarket.org. A special thanks goes to our market vice president, Mike Tillson for the Web site. There will be more news and recipes on there as the season goes on.
I am still searching for entertainers at the market, or should I say interesting performers to dance, sing, make balloons for kids, and maybe do face painting. Last year we had Terry Hughes and her Irish Dance group, so hopefully if she reads this, they will come back again. For more information on doing a performance at the Saturday market or any other questions, please contact myself at (518) 853-3183.
See you at the market, and don't forget to read my online blog at www.leaderherald.com.
