UTICA - The Oneida County Public Market has increased in size over the past several years, and is in need of greater administrative services.
Under a new contract, Cornell Cooperative Extension will manage the public market. Officials say the move offers a foundation of stability and sustainability for the market.
Cornell Cooperative Extension will open the market up to more resources and possibilities.
“Growing good food and knowing how to serve good food is at the heart of just about everything that happens there, so it was a natural logical progression to help the market continue to grow,” said Beth Irons, market manager.
Irons will continue to be the market manager, and tells NewsChannel 2 you can expect to see some expansion on existing programs this year. She says a whole host of new ideas are in the works for next year.
The market is open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Saturdays at Union Station in Utica.
