Otsego 2000’s Ellen Pope buys some of the produce she promotes: Spinach for a stew she was planning.

By LIBBY CUDMORE

COOPERSTOWN – For Ellen Pope, Otsego 2000 executive director, The Cooperstown Farmers’ Market isn’t just a place to pick up some fresh produce for dinner. It’s a piece of the community.
“Having it here has added to our quality of life,” she said. “It gives people a reason to come downtown on the weekends.”
The Farmers’ Market is one of six businesses that will be inducted into  the 2019 class of the Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce’s Business Hall of Fame at a March 28 ceremony at Brewery Ommegang.
The market was founded in 1991, with a handful of farmers renting stalls. “Farmers were facing a declining landscape, and this was a way of connecting them directly with their customers,”
said Pope.
