The Highland Park Winter Farmers Market is back

Starting this Wednesday, March 13,  vendors will return to Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County, 249 Highland Ave., from 3 to 6 p.m. It will run through mid-May, says vendor John Bolton, who will have some fresh hydroponic greens to sell.

Other vendors include Wohlschlegel’s Maple Farm, Nordich Farm Jams & Jellies, Tripleberry Farm, Heiden Valley Farm, Mooseberry Cafe & Soap Co., Fisher Hill Farm, Newberry Park Pastries, Pasta Classics/Flour City Pasta and Raymore Estate Cellars.

The market was halted shortly after the holidays due to difficulties in covering the rent but has come back because of consumer demand, says Bolton. “We will see how it goes. It was a very popular market,” Bolton says.
