Sixth annual Cottage Lawn farmers market season opened May 26
The Madison County Historical Society’s sixth annual Cottage Lawn farmers market season opened May 26. The farmers’ market will be held on the grounds of the Madison County Historical Society, every Tuesday, May 26 through Sept. 1 from 3 to 7 p.m. The market will feature local, seasonal produce, cheese, eggs, herbs, soaps, maple products, honey, poultry and much more.
The market welcomes state Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program checks. The FMNP consists of two programs: the Women, Infants and Children Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (WIC FMNP) and the Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP). Those eligible are provided checks to redeem for fresh, local fruits and vegetables at participating farmers’ markets and farm stands.
Due to the present COVID-19 guidelines, we are unable to offer the themed weeks that you have come to enjoy each week at the market. We will be closely monitoring the situation and, if it should change, we will keep you posted as we look forward to having fun activities for you and your families when you shop at the weekly market.
For more information and weekly updates, visit mchsfarmersmarket.org. We hope you will join us at the Cottage Lawn farmers market, every Tuesday to support your farmers and to purchase fresh, local fruits and vegetables. If you are a farmer or a vendor that sells face masks, hand sanitizers or soap, contact MCHS at 315.363.4136 we would like to have you join our market.
