Instead of completely closing down Main St., or putting stalls in parking spaces, the Village of Catskill
will close one block of Main St. between Thompson Street and the entrance to the municipal parking lot at Willard Alley from 7:30 a.m. to at least 2 p.m., for the Catskill Regional Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market Saturdays from June 19 to Oct. 30, Susan Campriello in The Daily Mail reports
. The farmer's market had been held at Dutchmen's Landing on the Hudson River, rather than downtown, and Village President Vince Seeley is also spearheading a similar move of the town's July 4 fireworks, both in an effort to stimulate downtown business. WGXC Radio Council member Hudson Talbott is curating the non-farmer's booths at the market.
