The Oneida County Public Market celebrated its tenth anniversary as its summer season opened on Saturday. For the first time this year, vendors set up shop outside Union Station.
Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente and market manager Beth Irons cut the ribbon in front of the market Saturday morning. Picente says a lot of people look forward to the public market because it has so much to offer.
"You can see lot of people, be outside, see a lot of vendors throughout this community and highlight all we have to offer," Picente said. "This setting is what also makes it great. Union station, Baggs Square, it's just a great place to be."
The market took a hit last year because of COVID and had to follow strict protocols in order to stay open. It will be open every Saturday from 9 AM to 1 PM.
