LAKESIDE – In a continued effort to promote health and wellness, Lakeside hosts a bi-weekly Farmers’ Market from 9 a.m. to noon every Tuesday and Friday until Labor Day weekend. You can find the market on Walnut Avenue (between Second and Third Streets) and along Third Street in front of Hoover Auditorium.
Farmers sell fresh and organic produce, honey, herbs, spices, coffee beans, loose leaf packaged tea, maple syrup, seasonal fruit, homemade pies, jams, artisan breads, gluten-free bakes, raw energy food, fresh cut flowers and homemade baked goods.
This summer’s Farmers’ Market has 15 vendors, including Bergman Orchards, Easy as Pie, Elk Creek Honey Farm, Farmers Wife Bread, Fresh 2U Coffee, Heywood Gardens, Miss Kitti’s, My Mother’s Market, Quinstock Farms, Racheal’s Veggies, Thompson Farms, Sonny Boys, Sweet & Savory, Tyler’s Farms and The Dogs Bags.
Items sold are grown or baked within a 50-mile radius; this provides the opportunity to purchase regionally produced goods and contribute to the growth of the local economy.
Tuesday’s Farmers’ Market will feature an “Ask a Gardener” booth where Lakeside Chautauqua’s Master Gardener, Loretta Wilken, will be available to answer gardening questions from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
A complimentary shopping/dining pass is available at the gates during the summer season for farmers’ market shopping. This complimentary pass offers admission to the Lakeside grounds for 90 minutes. The pass must be stamped by a Farmers’ Market vendor or a Lakeside Chautauqua administration office employee in order to exit Lakeside. Auto pass is not included. Ask a gate attendant for details.
