Downtown Batavia Public Market gets new moniker, new location

By Billie Owens

From BID:

The ninth season of the Downtown Batavia Public Market begins on Thursday, June 19, and will be open from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every Thursday through Sept. 25. But starting this year, it will be dubbed the Downtown FARMACY and there's a new location!

The Batavia Business Improvement District has announced that FARMACY will now be held in the parking lot at Bank Street and Alva Place (across from Jerome Center/UMMC). There will be plenty of convenient parking.

Among the offerings are baked goods, fresh corn, tomatoes, berries, homemade dog treats, peaches, potatoes, BBQ sauce, honey, maple syrup, fresh cut flowers, artisan wines, handmade quilts & crafts, and lots more.

Stop by and enjoy lunch prepared by Alston's BBQ. He will be serving his famous pulled pork sandwiches, as well as hot dogs and hamburgers. Of course he will be selling his specially made BBQ sauce.

There are a number of special programs and giveaways planned and these will be announced throughout the season, so stay tuned!

Remember, Local Food Dollars Remain Local.
