We are reaching out to you in this New Year with exciting news! We are working with the Town of Marcellus in developing an Open Air Market that will be held in Marcellus Park for the 2012 summer season.
Thursday afternoons 3:30 - 7:30.This will be an all inclusive style market, where farmers, food venders, artisans, artists, and non- profit organizations will participate. We will be planning weekly events, activities, special guests, acoustic music, etc., for the enjoyment of both children and adults. We plan to participate with EBT and WIC vouchers. There will be a gleaning table (a place for farmers to donate unwanted harvested items), that will then go to the local food bank.
The Marcellus Park is an exceptional venue for this style market. The park offers an incredible playground, walking paths, a beautiful creek running through it (9 mile creek), Skate Park, picnic tables with grills, pavilions, state of the art bathrooms, and parking. It is a place where the markets customer base will want to come, stay, play, and enjoy. The markets hours will lead up to the Thursday night Concert in the Park series which starts at 7:00 p.m. This is a popular and successful event that has been being held in the park for 10 years. We believe the combination of the Open Air Market and Concert in the Park series will make this a successful CNY venture. A place people will want to be.
We are very excited to be able to extend this opportunity to farmers, food venders, artists, artisans, etc. who are looking for new venues for their business to grow and thrive. At this time we are looking for a show of hands of those who would be interested in being a part of the developing Open Air Market If you or someone you know may be interested, please contact us. We are looking to collect a count of interested venders by February 23, 2012. We look forward to hearing from you.
For all that are interested, as we get the final go ahead, we would be sending out Vender contracts March, 2012.
Come and grow with us.
Sincerely, Erica Leubner & Rebecca Muir
