Saratoga Artisans’ and Crafters’ Market gets city’s OK to expand, serve food


 

The Saratoga Artisans’ and Crafters’ Market can now fill up High Rock Park and sell its customers food, thanks to lifted verbal restrictions from the city.

Market founder Frenchy Loeb, who also owns Frenchy’s bead and accessory boutique at 556 Maple Ave., had petitioned the City of Saratoga Springs to give the crafters’ market the same scope as the Saratoga Farmers' Market to use the entire park up to the legal capacity. She also asked for the inclusion of licensed and regulated artisan food vendors. The Department of Public Works acknowledged and approved the expansion, effective immediately.

The market is adding new food vendors each week. Zorbas Gar-La-La offers vegan foods, spreads and beverages. Olivia Vineyards from Fort Edward is a family-owned winery that combines the owners' passion for wine with their love of horseracing.  

The Saratoga Artisans’ and Crafters' Market is located in the High Rock Avenue park, and is open on Fridays from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

With more space available, the application process for the crafters’ market is again open to interested artisan food vendors who want to join the market for the remainder of this season, through August 30. Vendors may apply online at www.managemymarket.com. Register free and find the market under ZIP code 12866. Call 461-4893 for more information.
