Batavia Farmer’s Market Opening

May 20, 2019 – Batavia, New York

The Genesee Country Farmers’ Market @ The Downtown Batavia Public Market opens for the season on Friday, June 7th, at the market’s location on the corner of Bank Street and Alva Place in the Downtown Batavia Business District. Market hours are 9:00am to 4:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 9:00am to 5:00pm on Fridays with the season running from Friday, June 7th, through Friday, October 25th.

“This year marks the 4th year of collaboration with BID (Downtown Batavia Business Improvement District)”, says Market Manager Mike Bakos, “The Market will remain a three-day per week “Grow-Your-Own” market featuring the freshest locally-grown produce along with unique specialty items from local artisans. Vendors are excited about the upcoming market season with many of last year’s vendors returning along with some new additions. The market will once again participate in the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), DUFB (Double-Up Food Bucks), NYS FreshConnect, WIC and Senior Farmer’s Market Check Programs. Stop by and talk directly to the people that grow your food.”

The market is committed to its Mission of “providing a family-friendly environment where the residents of the Greater-Batavia area and Genesee County can shop for fresh, locally-grown, produce and specialty artisanal items” – and its Vision of “making the Genesee Country Farmers’ Market @ The Downtown Batavia Public Market a WNY Destination”.
