Baldwinsville Farmers Market Begins June 14 Under New Management – ​​Eagle News Online

BALDWINSVILLE — The Baldwinsville Farmers Market returns next week with a new organizer: Don Beaudry, owner of the Cluck n Burger Food Truck and general manager of Hungers for Hope.

Cluck n Burger had a long history at the Farmers Market when it was run by Baldwinsville Festravaganza organizers Mike and Michelle Samoraj. When the new organizer who took over in 2021 stepped down mid-season, Beaudry brainstormed with his fellow salespeople to pick up the pieces. Emmi Farms stepped in to run the event.

This year, Beaudry hopes to give the B’ville Farmer’s Market a solid foundation on which to build for the future.

“Let’s bring the farmers market back in full force and give B’ville a place to go on Tuesdays,” he said.

Every Tuesday from June 14 through September (weather permitting), Beaudry plans to bring five to seven fresh produce vendors and 25 to 30 artisans and artisans to Baldwin Canal Square.

“The number of people who have contacted us to become sellers is crazy,” said Beaudry.

Village chiefs also lent their support, Beaudry said. He added that he will meet with the Baldwinsville Department of Public Works to discuss parking, which some Baldwin Canal Square businesses have raised as an issue with the old Farmers’ Markets.

On that note, Beaudry hopes to forge ties with businesses in the village. He said the market could generate foot traffic for area shops and restaurants.

“Once you walk into the Farmers Market, then walk in and get a milkshake at B’ville Diner, you get tacos at Lil Twisted, an adult drink at WT Brews,” he said. he reflected. “When you’re downtown, it’s not just about picking up your things and leaving. … There are so many things to do in the village of Baldwinsville.

In addition, Beaudry wants the market to be a showcase for non-profit organizations in the region. His own organization, Hungers for Hope, helps revitalize VFW and American Legion halls so proceeds can benefit veterans.

The Baldwinsville Farmers’ Market takes place from 3-7 p.m. Tuesdays starting June 14 at Baldwin Canal Square (behind the B’ville Diner).
