Farmers Market | Elizabethtown Column

You can tell that summer has begun. It’s time to shop the Elizabethtown Farmers Market every Friday morning from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. through October. The market is located under the pavilion behind the Adirondack History Center Museum. Over 17 vendors are there regularly with delicious goodies, vegetables, beverages, plants and much more for sale.

Something new this year is The Clay Hearth, fabulous wood-baked pizza! Shop locally for the best of the Adirondacks.

On Saturday, June 7, the Adirondack History Center Museum will host their annual Antique and Classic Car Show from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Come out, enjoy excellent food, music and raffles. A $5.00 raffle ticket gives you a chance to win $1000.00 worth of gas, along with other prizes, drawing is at 2 p.m. To enter the car show, preregistration is $10.00 or $15.00 the day of the show. The show is open to vehicles of all years. Contact Aurora McCaffrey at 873-6466 or email the museum at echs@adkhistorycenter.org.

The museum will be open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. with free admission, so that you can view this year’s new exhibits including the “Arto Monaco: The Land of MakeBelieve“ exhibit and “Hiking and Recreation Artifacts” presented by the Adirondack 46ers. This event is a fundraiser for the museum so that they may continue to present interesting and valuable exhibits for us to enjoy each year.

Just to let you know, the Elizabethtown Thrift Shop is open on Saturdays throughout the summer from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. All other days the hours have not changed. Thanks to all who took the time to make last Saturday a fantastic collection day, look for all the new stock coming soon!

On a different note: Shame on whomever is dumping construction material at the Elizabethtown brush dump. It only takes one bad apple to spoil it for the rest of the town. Unfortunately, this could give the DEC a reason to close the dump as they did in Keene and Westport. The regulations are the same as in the past: Only natural yard waste and no branches over three inches in diameter. Please adhere to the rules. It’s only fair for the rest of the Elizabethtown residents who would like to have nice clean properties.
