Zach’s Trip To The Public Market In Utica

Public Market's Opening Day In Utica
Zach Effrog, Big Frog 104, Townsquare Media

It was opening day on Saturday, June 25, of the Oneida County Public Market at Union Station in Utica. Although the sun wasn’t out, many residents were out and about taking advantage of the great things the market had to offer.

On Saturday, there were about 20 vendors lining the sidewalk and street next to Union Station. Whether you’re looking for fresh fruits and vegetables, maple syrup, honey, homemade treats or food from local restaurants, the market has it.

Being the herbivore that I am, I went to the market looking for vegetables and some fruit. After walking around for a little bit, I was able to fill my eco-friendly, reusable shopping bag with corn, peas, cucumbers, peaches and tomatoes. I was pretty happy with my delicious, healthy food I walked away with. We were even able to get a cup of coffee at the market.

Yes, those who know me, know I eat many fruits and vegetables. This means, I scour the area looking for the freshest produce possible at a great price. I have been to many public markets, in different areas of the state, and every time I’m there, I think to myself how great it would be if Utica had a market like this. Well, somebody must have been reading my mind because, now, Utica has a great addition to the neighborhood.

If you want to stop by and check things out, they’re open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. And, according to the Oneida County Public Market website, they will be open Saturdays through the fall. To check out the website and get more information, click here.
