The Washington Park Farmers Market, a new farmers market owned and operated by Scott Abraham and Olivia Pettit, will launch this summer – running each Saturday from Aug. 4 through Sept. 29.

The farmers market, with guidance from the Lark Street Business Improvement District, the Washington Park Conservancy, and the City of Albany, will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. In addition to the market, there will be Yoga in the Park from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. preceding each market. Every two weeks, different hot food vendors from the surrounding neighborhoods will be present to promote their establishments or catering operations.

“We’re proud to have worked with Scott and Olivia to help get the Washington Park Farmers Market off the ground,” said Shauna M. Collins, executive director, Lark Street Business Improvement District. “In other communities, farmers markets have drawn visitors to patronize local restaurants and retailers and we know this has the potential to do the same.”

“Having lived on the Park for so many years, appreciating Washington Park’s beautiful landscape and continuous upkeep, it’s only fitting to bring the market to these amazing neighborhoods,” said Scott Abraham, director and owner.

Abraham and Pettit own and operate the Guilderland Farmers Market. The market will be located at the Knox Street Mall.

The farmers market organizers and the Lark Street BID also wish to thank the Center Square Neighborhood Association, the Hudson/Park Neighborhood Association, the Washington Park Neighborhood Association, the Park South Neighborhood Association and various businesses within the Lark Street BID corridor for offering their support for the Farmers Market.
