The Potter County Farmers’ Market is organized by a group of local farmers as an outlet to market local products. While consumer interest in local foods has increased in recent years, many are still not aware of the availability of naturally-grown and organic produce in the area. We were pleased with the response from the community to our market last year and we’re looking for additional participating vendors this year.
New guidelines for participation were enacted last year and will remain in effect this year. According to the guidelines, vendors must be farmers (the term “farmer” means actively engaged in the production of fruits, honey, maple syrup, vegetables, eggs, plants, crops, trees, fiber or livestock, poultry and fish) and/or must be engaged in producing products such as baked goods, prepared foods, jams/jellies/candies or craft items in their homes or businesses. Vendors are eligible to participate in the Potter County Farmers’ Market if their farm or business is located within 50 miles of Coudersport.
Any interested farmer is encouraged to contact Jane Metzger via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 814-274-8004 for additional information and an application for participation.
The Potter County Farmers’ Market will be held on Fridays from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. beginning May 24 and continuing through early October.
Some Saturday sales are planned including limited participation during the Potter-Tioga Maple Festival, Memorial Day weekend, God’s Country Marathon weekend, Independence Day weekend, Woodsmen’s Show/Archery Show weekend, Labor Day weekend and the Falling Leaves Festival. Saturday hours will be 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
