The new market is currently open Thursdays from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m. and Mondays from 4-7 p.m., but vendors may opt to use other days as well, said organizer Robert Carlisle.
A variety of vendors are selling their products, including Amish-made goods, fresh produce, honey, tie-dye garments, handmade quilts and silhouette art paintings.
Fobare’s BBQ & Catering, Rensselear Falls, has been a big draw at the new Ogdensburg Farmers’ Crafts and Art Market, says Carlisle.
The catering service sells a variety of BBQ pulled pork and chicken, along with salads, desserts and other foods, depending on the weather. With the hot weather last Thursday, their ice-cold, homemade lemonade was very popular.
