SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Its been a successful start to the season for the farmers market in Downtown Syracuse.
It's just about the halfway point of the season for the market which is held every Tuesday in Clinton Square.
Many of the vendors have started to offer more varieties as we head into August, including blueberries, plums, cauliflower, and corn.
Vendors say the market did catch some rain the last few weeks; however, a good mix of sun and rain has led to some great produce so far.
"Its been a very good I believe. Many of the farmers struggled early on. It was so dry. They spent a lot of money to irrigate. The last few weeks we've had pretty significant amounts of rain, and it really really helps push them along," said Downtown Farmers Market Director Chuck McFadden.
The market runs every Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. through October 9. People can also catch live entertainment at 11:30 a.m. every week.
