The weekly farmers’ markets in Lake Placid and Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks will continue to offer locally produced farm products and handmade goods — but under a new name and host organization.
The Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) announced that it will provide organizational support for the two markets under the newly dubbed “High Peaks Farmers’ Market.” ANCA will also hire a part-time manager to oversee the markets.
ANCA, a Saranac Lake-based economic development nonprofit that focuses on local food, small businesses, clean energy and the Adirondack Diversity Initiative, is currently seeking applicants for the new market manager position. The application deadline is Friday, April 15th.
The farmers’ market committee identified ANCA as a regional partner that not only has the organizational capacity to support the markets, but also a strong understanding of the vital role local farms and food producers play in rural communities.
The part-time market manager will provide administrative and event support for the Saranac Lake and Lake Placid farmers’ markets from May through October. The job description can be found on ANCA’s website.
The High Peaks Farmers’ Market’s 2022 summer schedule includes weekly markets at Riverside Park in Saranac Lake, every Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm, May 28th to October 8th, and in the Green Goddess Market parking lot in Lake Placid, 2051 Saranac Ave., every Wednesday, 9 am to 1 pm, June 14th to September 14th.
