Troy Farmers' Market adding "twilight market"

troy farmers market logo from twitterThe Troy Waterfront Farmers' Market is adding a "twilight market" starting in May, according to a posting today on its Facebook page.

The market will be the last Friday of each month (as part of Troy Night Out) in Riverfront Park (map), from 5-8 pm. The posting pitches the evening time as an alternative for people who can't it make on Saturday morning. The plan is continue the twilight market through October.

And based on a follow-up comment, it looks like the farmers' market will be back on River Street when it heads back outside.

Another great idea coming out of Troy. Albany really needs to expand to a larger Farmers' Market, or at the very least, draw on the success from the one at the Empire State Plaza. Having one on our waterfront along the trail would also be a great addition. Perhaps it could fit into the waterfront plan with the Economic Redevelopment Council money.

YEAH!

So, expect to find a bunch of emo kids hanging around looking for vampires to romance... see what I did there?

Fantastic idea!

Albany so needs to do this at the Plaza!
I always miss the weekday ones because of work.

Add local music and perhaps some local breweries selling/sampling locally made beer and invite some local artists
to vend their work and we have a recipe for a terrific night out
that will also bump the sales of local restaurants.


The Empire State Plaza farmer's market is run out of the OGS plaza managers office. They are a great group and would probably be very interested in your ideas.

Cool idea! I imagine if the usual Troy Farmers Market prepared-food vendors are at the twilight market they may end up getting a lot of business. Not so sure about the grocery-type-vendors. Picking up groceries before going out to TNO doesn't appeal to me as much, but I can see how it will be useful for others!

And echoing the other commenters, if the Albany ESP market was held on literally any day and time outside of normal business hours, I would attend as often as possible. Having a farmers market within walking distance would be awesome... If only it weren't designed solely for state workers.
