Wisner Market Closes for the Season
ELMIRA (WENY)--- Summer has come to and end, and so has Elmira's popular downtown farmers market. Wisner market closes Thursday for the season. Vendors are out until 2 PM with fresh local produce and treats, along with live music and antique cars.
Mother nature wasn't so kind this season, but that didn't stop the vendors or local residents from visiting the market.
Jennifer Herrick of Elmira Downtown Development says, "This has been 17 years of this great community event. The weather wasn't always on our side, but the bottom line is that the people still enjoy this event and they still come downtown every Thursday, rain or shine. They enjoy this market, the food and music and the arts and crafts."
Herrick says around 1,000 people visited the market each Thursday during the peak of summer. Again, the market runs until 2 PM at Wisner Park in downtown Elmira. The market reopens in June of 2014.
