Tuesday marks the last day of the year for the Downtown Farmer's Market in Clinton Square. YNN's Brad Vivacqua takes a look back at this year's season.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Downtown Farmer's Market will come to a close for the season on Tuesday. According to officials with the Downtown Committee, the rain scared away crowds at the start of the season. But as the summer progressed, the crowds grew.
For the past four months, nearly 50 vendors set up shop in Clinton Square every Tuesday. They offered everything from fresh produce to flowers.
The rainy start to the season did limit some of the local crops. However, downtown leaders said they all made the best of a tough situation.
"The farmer's are pretty resilient. They come no matter what, they know they have to do their job, and people still come out to see them because they know they're not going to get any fresher produce than they'll get right there," said Chuck McFadden, Downtown Committee Operations Director.
The market will run until 4 p.m. on Tuesday. There will also be free cider and donuts for anyone who attends the market.
