Save the Date for the Oswego County Holiday Farmers’ Market

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County will once again be hosting the Oswego County Holiday Farmers’ Market.

This year the market will be held on December 1 as part of the “Christmas in Mexico” festivities. Visit the market and find great holiday gifts from local Agricultural Producers.  There is no better way to support the local economy than buying local holiday gifts.

When dollars are spent directly in the community the money is turned over multiple times, benefiting the entire community.

In addition to finding these local goods, customers have the opportunity to speak directly with the farmers present at the market. The market will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mexico VFW on Scenic Ave. (State Route 3) just north of the village of Mexico.

Free coffee and hot chocolate will be provided.
