See below list of additional Farmers Markets to be held on Saturdays when special events are taking place in Coudersport.  Since, we are an outdoor market we might have to cancel due to weather.  Check Solomon’s Word for weekly market updates including the participating farms, the selection of products and special events. Make it a point to visit the market often as the selection expands and changes with the season.  We may try to hold additional Farmer’s Market on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. if enough interest is expressed by our customers and our farms have additional produce available.

Date Saturday Market Events Hours
July 6, 2013 Independence Day weekend 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
August 3, 2013 Woodsmen’s Show/Archery Show 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
August 31, 2013 Labor Day weekend and Coudy Town Wide Yard Sales 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
October 5, 2013 Falling Leaves Festival 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

To better serve our customers, the Market has moved to the corner of North East and East Second Streets (Rt. 6E) located adjacent to the courthouse square in Coudersport.  There will be plenty of signs, so you won’t miss us. And, based on what we are hearing about the new location — WE LOVE IT. It’s easier to unload for the vendors, it’s quieter and it seems like the parking situation is much better.

We would like to get as much fresh local produce into the homes of those who need it. Most of our farms are certified to receive FMNP checks. Market hours and location were selected based a consensus of the group with inputs from our regular customers.  Each farm will try to work with any customers who are not able to get to the market during the regular hours.  Hopefully as we grow, the two day per week schedule can be extended to include additional Saturdays during the season. The best advice we can give you until then is to get to know the farmers and become familiar their products and build a relationship with us.   Visit the Our Farmers Page to learn more and get to know local farmers. Once that working relationship is built, you will find that we’ll be happy to work with you outside of Farmer’s Market hours.

Thank You, Our Local Farmers

At the heart of Wooleylot Farm is the garlic (allium sativa) the freshest, most local cloves. We started growing garlic a few years ago and realized quickly that “it grows pretty well in Potter County and… people like it.
