THURMAN - A new farmers' market - offering farm and maple products, crafts, antiques as well as produce - is set to hold a Grand Opening event Aug. 12 at the site of the Thurman train station. It is anticipated this market will be open each Wednesday through October from 3 - 6 p.m.
A group of produce growers and artisans belonging to the Thurman Station Association has been working with Warren County Department of Parks, Recreation and Railroad and the Town of Thurman to create a local outlet for their goods.
Thurman Town Supervisor Red Pitkin, an active member of the committee, said this week that creating the market was a team effort.
"We have an energetic committee that has worked hard to pull together a plan in just a few weeks," he said. "The spirit of cooperation has been outstanding."
Market manager Cheryl Kenyon, co-owner of Adirondack Gold Maple Farm, is lining up vendors for Thurman Station Farmers' Market.
"I think this will be a great market for local people and tourists alike," she said, noting that spaces are available by the week, by the month or the season.
Those seeking to be a vendor should contact Kenyon at 623-9718 or at: AdkGoldMaple@aol.com.
