Riverfront Farmers Market opening a success

Friday, the Warrensburgh Riverfront Farmers' Market opened for its 2010 season, and the event was well-attended. People drove from a wide region to browse and purchase the produce and other offerings grown and crafted in Warrensburg, Thurman and the Adirondacks.

Every Friday until mid-October, the market will be open from 3 to 6 p.m. The market is held in the town park on the southwestern bank of the Schroon River across from Curtis Lumber on Rte. 418, or River Street.

The market is a "producer only" outlet that features fresh locally grown produce, wine, maple products, honey, gourmet cheeses, herbs, natural meats, specialty plants and handcrafted soaps.

Several new vendors this year include Crown Point Bread Co. offering their artisan breads and pastries, Aaron and Minnie Nason of Stony Creek with their organic produce, and Sugarloaf Farm with their aged raw-milk cheese.

Market organizer Teresa Whalen said that she was pleased with the attendance and the new offerings.

"It was a picture-perfect day and everyone enjoyed the experience," she said.
