 It’s summertime and the Ticonderoga Area Farmers’ Market is in full swing.  On Saturdays from 10AM to 1PM at Wicker Wood (1114 Wicker Street) near the Walmart entrance, the prospect of finding fresh local fruits and vegetables, meats, eggs, honey, maple syrup and then some is excellent.  Farmers and vendors are proud to present their bounty, a plethora of products that change as the growing season evolves.  They will continue to grow, harvest and sell at the market through mid-October.  (Note: July 29th, the Market moves downtown to participate in Ticonderoga’s annual StreetFest.)

“Our grand opening celebration is scheduled for July 22nd”, stated Carol Wood Ramundo, Market Manager.   “Lance Clark, Mike Donahue and Jessica Paradis, performing a mix of folk, bluegrass, country, pop and rock music, are sure to offer much merriment throughout the morning. You will not want to miss them.  The Kid’s Zone will highlight a “photo stand-in”, a cut-out of a farm tractor for the kids to stand behind and imagine they are driving a big tractor through the fields, captured in a photo?”

There’s no better place to strengthen your local economy than to shop and eat locally. Shopping at the farmers’ market you are supporting agriculture, commerce and community.  You are also supporting yourself and your family with fresh healthy local products. The Ticonderoga Area Farmers’ Market is not only a great place to purchase local products and goods, but is a good place for family and friends to convene.

“The farmers’ market is embarking upon its 4th year revival and has many entities to thank for its continued growth, stated June Curtis Market Advisor. “Firstly, the farmers and vendors are paramount to the success of the market, proudly sponsored by the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce.  Support from the Town of Ticonderoga, International Paper Company, Stewarts Shops, Clinton County Health Department/Creating Healthy Schools and Communities, Geraws OK Septic Service, and Carol and Rick Ramundo has provided our infrastructure and has been invaluable.  Grant awards from Stewarts Shops and the Essex County Arts Council have underwritten musical entertainment and children’s art projects. Our market thrives surrounded by these advocates who have a deep sense of community and for whom we have much gratitude.”

“Our market manager Carol Wood Ramundo has offered to open the Kids Zone and lead a craft project every week this season”, exclaimed Matt Courtright. Chamber Executive Director. “This year we have produced a rack card exclusive to the farmers’ market which carries the full schedule of activities.  We plan to distribute it this week and hope to see many families with children partake of the many fun events as well as a recipe of the week.”
