Melanie Lekocevic writes in The Daily Mail, a farmers' market is coming to Riverside Park in Coxsackie, this May. The Village Board gave the plan a thumbs up at its recent meeting. “The board is committing to sponsor and support a farmer’s market in the village, so we reached out to several people who are willing to work to make it happen,” Mayor Mark Evans said. Melissa Scheriff from Greene County Rural Health Network and Cornell Cooperative Extension worked with the village to launch the project. The village will sponsor the market and provide insurance coverage. The market will be held 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Wednesdays, from May through October. "Such markets are seen to benefit both consumers and farmers by making locally grown, fresh produce more easily accessible, and by providing another marketing outlet to support local farms," Lekocevic writes.
