BARRYVILLE, NY — The Barryville Farmers’ Market will launch a new series of educational, cultural and spiritual events. The first event will be held on Saturday, July 2 at 11 a.m. in the garden at the market.
The new series—titled “Back to the Garden”—will take place every Saturday until Labor Day. Additional events are planned for the autumn.
“We’re thrilled to be offering lectures and workshops,” said a spokesperson for the farmers’ market. “It’s all about making the market even more valuable and welcoming for everyone in our community. The Garden series adds value on top of our already popular weekly music series and new cooking demonstrations, not to mention, of course, our incredible local farmers and food vendors.”
The inaugural event, on Saturday, July 2, will feature Sullivan County Historian John Conway speaking about life in the Upper Delaware river area during colonial times.
Other July events include a talk on the secret history of art colonies here, presented by Anie Stanley of Smokey Belles Catskills Homestead on July 9; a workshop on sun printing by Greyscale Darkroom and Photo Lab on July 16; a Barryville “mini-book fair,” presented by Counseling in Schools and Measures of Hope on July 23; and “The Importance of Small-Town Papers,” presented by River Reporter publisher Laurie Stuart on July 30.
The Barryville Farmers’ Market is located at 3405 Rte. 97.
August events will be announced soon. For more information, visit www.barryvillefarmersmarket.org.
