POTSDAM -- The Potsdam Farmers' Market has suspended their Wednesday hours for the season.

The cancellation decision is due to the slower than normal growing season, brought about by the harsh winter and late spring.

"Despite closing the Wednesday market, our Saturday market is booming; we have over 15 vendors selling everything from greenhouse tomatoes to farm fresh eggs, and so much in between" says Laura Popielski, market manager.

The Potsdam Farmers' Market is open in Ives Park, beyond the municipal parking lot on Main Street on Saturdays 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. until the end of October.

"The market is a great place to buy local foods, meet those who grow it and do so in a beautiful outdoor setting," Popielski said.

Shoppers can find a wide variety fresh produce, meats, eggs, herbs, baked goods, jams, maple syrup, honey, teas, wines, and a unique selection of jewelry, clothing and naturally made bath and body products. The market also hosts weekly guests performing live music or providing education activities for children.

Additionally, the market is implementing a summer-long book giveaway in which children can find books wrapped in brown paper hidden at vendor booths.
