SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- It was the last chance for people to grab some fresh fruits and vegetables in Clinton Square.
The popular Downtown Farmer's Market came to a close Tuesday. It wraps up as many Central New York farmers turn their attention to the first frost and preparing for the winter.
A group of local farmers, producers and vendors have been setting up shop downtown for more than 40 summers now. It’s not just food that's growing. The number of people coming to the event is growing too.
"Every apartment that they build downtown, we get a new customer. Apartments are filling up faster than they can build them. So we get a good base. It's taken us time, but we have a captive crowds of 30,000 plus employees that work downtown and look forward to the farmers’ market on a weekly basis," said Chuck McFadden, Director of Operations of the Downtown Committee of Syracuse.
The Downtown Committee is looking to expand the market in future years as more space becomes available.
The market is expected to start again in June of next year.
