Assemblyman Blankenbush Encourages You to Buy Local

Here, in Northern New York, we are lucky to have an abundance of fresh and local products, especially during the spring, summer and fall months. From strawberries and sweet corn, to whole wheat flour and maple syrup, the opportunities to buy local products are endless. That’s why I am encouraging my constituents to take advantage of the many farmers’ markets throughout the 122nd Assembly District. These venues are excellent opportunities to browse the myriad of products that are available, buy local, affordable and healthy produce, try something new, and most importantly, support our area’s hardworking farmers and entrepreneurs. Most of the farmers’ markets in the region support WIC/ Senior Farmers Market Nutrition programs, and many vendors take credit and/or debit card payments as well. The farmers’ markets in or near the 122nd Assembly District include: Carthage Farmers’ Market Farmers’ Market Pavilion
