Catskill plays market guessing game again

Jan 25, 2012 12:06 am
"Main St. market encore favored" is the unfortunate headline on Doron Tyler Antrim's story in The Daily Mail about how Catskill officials, for the third year in a row, are going to spend a lot of time talking about where the Farmer's Market should be located. Antrim quotes only one official, Trustee Brian Kehoe, saying he wants the market to move back to Main St., where it was in 2010. He also quotes Trustee Jim Chewens, who says the businesses in Catskill do not want it there. He also quotes Village President Vincent Seeley, who says it did not work well at its 2011 location, a parking lot adjacent to Church Street. The long public argument over the location may be cut short early this year, as the Catskill Region Farmers Association meets Thursday to discuss the market’s future. They may not want to come back to a town that moves the market to a different location each year. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
