MEXICO — The 2020 Oswego County Holiday Farmers Market, online Dec. 1 through 15, has lined up participating vendors. It was announced by Paul Forestiere, executive director, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County.

Participating vendors include: Beckwith Family Christmas Trees & Wreaths; Ben & Deeb’s Specialties, LLC; Black Creek Farms; Bristol’s Weather Haven Farm; Buttercup Cheese TNG Inc.; Dancing Goat Farm; Goodman’s Christmas Tree Farm; H&H Trees; JE Woodworking; Jacob the Beekeeper; Leonard’s Evergreens; Linda Young; Little Tea Cart; Lock 1 Distilling Company; Pondview; Silverfox Farm and Apiaries; Stargot Tree Farm; and Stony Hill Acres.
“The list will go ‘live’ December first and be active through Dec. 15 on Thatscooperativeextension.org.

The mission of the event is to bring vendor and purchaser together in one place, online. Buying local provides financial support directly to the local economy.”

“Oswego County is a rural county, with a prosperous agricultural community,” Forestiere said. “The diversity of land allows for the growth of a variety of agricultural products including onions, apples, meat, cheese, wine, maple syrup, honey, berries, plums, peaches, and a wide variety of vegetables. The agricultural community in this county generates $41.2 million in annual revenue from 612 farms. Our Holiday Farmers Market showcases this abundance and helps our local economy.”
