We’re changing our approach to supporting local farmers and food producers in 2019. 

Unfortunately, low visitation and sales in 2018 – despite the fact that Goodell and Erie County Health Department put more money into advertising the Farmers Market than ever before – resulted in very frustrated vendors. At the end of the season we were faced with a choice: make big changes or lose the vendors and have no market at all. 

So, this year we won’t be hosting the market on Wednesday afternoons. Instead we’re hosting four monthly events – June – September – during which a Farmers Market will be featured. 

June 23, July 14, and August 4 from 1 – 4 pm will be called Sunday Funday and will feature a Farmers Market along with other things (flea market, kids activities, themed programming and more). 

And then we’ll once again host a market on Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019 from 12 – 5 during our annual Homegrown Harvest Festival.
