It starts with a Mission
We could think of a million reasons why someone would go to their local farmers market - easily! There's a variety of delicious produce, local beverages, unique crafts, live music, and so much more. Beyond that though, farmers markets strengthens community.
At the Greater Watertown - North Country Chamber of Commerce, our mission is to promote and support business and industry, to enhance the community in which we live, work, and do business. The Watertown Farm & Craft Market plays a significant role in just that!
Markets across the country have become a key component to our nation's economy, food system, and community. Our market promotes and supports local business. For over forty years, we have been connecting rural to urban and providing an opportunity for product sales. And when food is produced, processed, distributed, and sold locally, well the result is pretty great. This process leads to economic development and often yields job creation. But beyond the economic and business benefits, markets contribute to the surrounding community by providing a social event.
Neighbor to Neighbor
The Watertown Farm & Craft Market directly connects farmers & crafters to consumers while providing a place for neighbor to meet neighbor. Features such as food trucks, live music, and art, all contribute to the atmosphere of our market. Every Wednesday, families, friends, and professionals come out to shop local, eat local, and enjoy downtown Watertown.
The benefits of having a farmers market are felt throughout our community. The Watertown Farm & Craft Market truly helps to enhance the community in which we live, work, and do business. So next time you're thinking of picking up some fresh veggies or shopping for some new accessories, bring a friend or a coworker and enjoy the market!
