Coop Farmers’ Market

Makes Parade’s Top 25

Through August, the Cooperstown Farmers’ Market is open 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays, and noon-5 p.m. Tuesdays.  Hours are reduced slightly the rest of the year.

This is the Farmers’ Market’s new logo, introduced in the past year.

COOPERSTOWN – Parade, the national in-newspaper magazine, has named the Cooperstown Farmers’ Market one of the 25 best in the nation.

Sponsored by Otsego 2000, the market “draws 30 growers, producers and artisans from within 50 miles,” Parade reports, “who offer up New York apples and cider, summer corn, maple syrup, pastured meats, poultry and farmstead cheeses – there’s even a local spirit distillery – along with baked goods and crafts.”

Students Gather For Youth Food Movement

Students Gather For

Youth Food Movement

COOPERSTOWN – Cooperstown sisters Kristen and Dana Leonard spoke in front of a large gathering of local high school students this morning during the Otego County Youth Food Movement, an event organized by the sisters to raise awareness for local agriculture and farming. The students listened to multiple presenters speak about locally sourced food. District 19 Congresisonal Candidate Erin Collier, D-Cooperstown, pictured at right, was one of the speakers, who talked about her experience growing up on a farm in Cooperstown, and why local agriculture is important.

Afterwards, the students visited three different stations where they learned hands-on about locally sourced produce. The students also made “disco soup,” which is soup made from produce that was rejected from supermarkets based on appearance. The soup that the students made will be served at tomorrow’s farmer’s market in Cooperstown. (Parker Fish/AllOTSEGO.com)
