Watertown Farm & Craft Market to open Wednesday for season

WATERTOWN, NY — The Watertown Farm & Craft Market, hosted by the Greater Watertown-North Country Chamber of Commerce and presented by Watertown Savings Bank, is back and bigger than ever!

The market will open on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 and will run through October 10th on Washington Street in Downtown Watertown every Wednesday 6:30 am – 3:00 pm (except for Independence Day on July 4th). As in previous years, vendors will accept EBT and WIC.

The Farm and Craft Market will include entertainment from a variety of musicians and daily concerts will be held on the lawn of City Hall from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm and are free of charge to the public.

New this year we will be expanding the market down Sterling Street! This exiting development will allow organizers to maintain traditional vendors and grow as we welcome 10 new vendors to the 2018 Watertown Farm & Craft Market! The expansion will enhance the market experience and create an energetic and safe atmosphere for market goers. Sterling Street will be closed to through traffic during the hours of the market and alternative routes will be marked.

Once again, there will be Farm & Craft Market shuttle service with access points in JB Wise parking lots and the Marshall Place Lot off Court Street. The shuttle will run each Wednesday 9:45am through the close of the market, 3:00pm, every 20 minutes. The first pickup location will be at the JB Wise parking lot at the Mayor Joseph M. Butler
