Farmers’ Market

Farmers’ Market In Chamber Hall Of Fame

Farmers’ Market

In Chamber

Hall Of Fame

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.

Milford Park Dedicated In Former Mayor’s Name

In Milford, Park’s Naming

Surprises Former Mayor

After serving as mayor for the Village of Milford for 20 years, Sabine Curry now serves as the manager of the Milford Farmers’ Market. Today, the village recognized her service by naming a new Milford Community Park at the village’s north end in her honor. The dedication was a surprise to Curry, who reacted with tears as the sign was unveiled. The newly dedicated Sabine Curry Outdoor Recreational Park is the village’s newest park, and has served as the home for the village farmers’ market which, under Curry’s management, opened this year.  At today’s noontime announcement are, from left, Assistant DPW  Chief John Muir, Village Clerk Kitty Ruling, Village DPW Chief  Paul Francis, Trustee Taylor Brose, Deputy Mayor Dave West, Sabine Curry, Mayor Brian Pokorny and Otsego County Sheriff (and village resident) Richard J. Devlin, Jr.  Inset, West hugs Curry after the announcement.  (Parker Fish/AllOTSEGO.com)
