The Newfane Methodist Farmer’s Market held its regular venue of vendors this week, reporting that both the vendor and customer base continue to grow.
Andrea Grenzy owns a farm on Route 104 and participates as a vendor in both the Lockport and Newfane Farmer’s Markets. “Last week, some vendors sold out,” Grenzy remarked, adding that an expansion of vendor allowances may be drawing in more customers. She explained, “Originally when this started, it was only supposed to be produce. They just started allowing in other items to be sold.”
Patricia Jolley sells baked goods at her stand, and right now, she runs her business from home. Just opening last year, she has thoughts of opening a permanent spot in town, stating, “I would love to open a place. My dream building is right down the road. It’s going to take a lot of cookies to get there.”
Marilyn Kasperek, better known as Pastor Marilyn to her parishioners, is happy to see people coming out. Additionally, she plans on adding community services for seniors, “We want to try and have some educational stuff, too. Sometime before the end of summer we want to have some information for senior citizens for fall prevention and just staying healthy.”
The Newfane Methodist Farmer’s Market takes place every Wednesday from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. For updates, feel free to check them out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Newfane-Methodist-Farmers-Market-1698236687072104/?ref=br_rs
