Tupper Lake, NY – The Board of Directors of the Adirondack Farmers’ Market Cooperative recently donated $500.00 to The Wild Center. Citing the inclusion of the Tupper Lake Farmers Market in the AFMC Calendar, Dick Crawford, President of the AFMC Board said, “We appreciate that you let us hold our market at The Wild Center, and as part of celebrating twenty years of Farmers’ Markets, we would like to present The Wild Center with a $500.00 donation”.
The Tupper Lake Farmers Market, looking forward to its third year in 2011, is held every Thursday from mid-June until mid-September at The Wild Center. Over a dozen vendors from the Adirondacks and the Champlain and St. Lawrence valleys will return to the summer pavilion tent at the museum. Meats and vegetables, baked goods and herbs, hand-made crafts, honey and maple syrup will be available for sale by the producers who grew or made them.
