Farmer to Fork Market Brings Owego Community Together

Owego is hosting a different type of farmer's market this summer. Farm to Fork market brings more to Owego than just fruits and veggies.

Laura Eberly, market manager, said "Well one thing that was needed in Owego was night time entertainment. Just things that everyone can do so we thought that every week we could have a farmer's market."

If you're looking for locally grown produce, look no further than the Farm to Fork Market in Owego.

"So every week there's new stuff coming to market and what's unique about us is our restaurants that are local on the street come out and cook food that's fresh from the farmers" says, Eberly.

Marty Mattrazzo, owner of Farmhouse Brewery, says,"It allows local growers to be able to to sell their products directly to consumers. That's good for the growers and good for the consumer."

But you'll find more than just fresh produce at this farmers market.

Locally grown produce, locally made products and most importantly bringing the community together".

"We're proud to be part of the Owego Community and we're glad to be interacting as much as we can here", said Mattrazzo.

In addition to the farmers market, Farm to Fork hosts a new band every week and has plenty of activities to keep kids entertained while parents shop.

Owego resident Karen Kretsch says,"They're doing everything and you've got a little bit of everything and I think it's great."
