Stone Harbor to Relocate Farmers Market

Stone Harbor to Relocate Farmers Market

STONE HARBOR – The borough’s popular farmers market will be moving from the confined area around the water tower to the 94th Street parking lot this year.

The Borough Council voted for the move at its meeting Tuesday, Feb. 20. There was a consensus among council members that the larger space would allow for further development of the seasonal weekend attraction, which draws between 1,500 and 2,000 visitors each week, according to tourism director Jenny Olson.

Councilwoman Bunny Parzych said the possibility of moving the market to the larger space had been talked about for years. She said it is “time to try and to stop thinking about it.”

Concern that the new site does not offer bathroom facilities did not sway Councilman Tim Carney, who said the restrooms at the water tower were “only a block away.”

Olson told the council that if the location was to change, the decision needed to be made immediately, given the number of things that have to be done before the start of the season. The market generally operates every Sunday from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

The resolution approving the move also set the vendor fee for a seasonal space at $575 and at $50 for a pop-up space.
