What You Can Find at the Winter Farmer’s Market

November 10, 2009

Our winter farmer’s market is held the in the “arcade” of Proctor’s Theatre, a former vaudeville theater that now hosts both shows and movies.  An “arcade” is “an arched or covered passageway, usually with shops on each side.”

It’s really pretty in that hallway as well. This is Van Curler Music. Arendt Van Curler was the founder of Schenectady.

There are so many more vendors, but here’s most of the ones we visit each week.  Sometimes there are other, Lloyd Spears, Beekeeper, Divinitea, Maynard Farms, but this is a good smattering!  The winter market will be going on every Sunday until May!
