Opening day, June 19th, at the Downtown Batavia Public Market’s (FARMACY) new location at the Bank Street & Alva Place Parking Lot was a huge success. Many of the vendors sold out of their produce, fruit and food.
The markets’ sponsor, Batavia Business Improvement District, was more than pleased, as it was biggest opening in its nine years. They choose this site because it is more central to the Jerome Center, Washington Towers, Genesee Country Mall, YMCA and the surrounding neighborhoods. Bank Street is also a well- traveled street with local traffic.
The market will be open every Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 pm, June 19th – Sept. 25th. Plenty of convenient parking at our new location.
The FARMACY offers: baked goods, tomatoes, berries, dog treats, herbs, peaches, potatoes, BBQ sauce, honey, maple syrup, olive oil, wine & handmade quilts & crafts and lots more.
There will be nutrition and gardening programs offered and give- a-ways that will be announced throughout the market season. Stay tuned.
