Skaneateles: Market dates set, Saturdays added to calendar

Skaneateles Town Clerk Janet Aaron reported to the board that Councilor Jim Greenfield and former Councilor Dave Laxton have "done a great job" getting this year's Skaneateles Farmer's Market set up.

The group received its first vendor application for the seasonal open-air market from Rose Ryan. The market will be open from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursdays beginning May 20 at the Skaneateles Community Center in the parking lot.

Due to vendor interest, there will be a second market from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays beginning June 12, also at the community center.

According to Greenfield, they wouldn't have decided to hold the market on Saturdays if there were only one or two vendors who would be there. In order to have the second day each week, Greenfield said they wanted to have at least 10 vendors. He expects between 10 and 12 vendors each Saturday.

Many of Skaneateles' vendors also attend markets in Syracuse on Saturdays.
