NorthNewYork has creatively designed a new friendโ€”meet Montour Market ๐Ÿ’—

...finding a north experience in community sustainability, the best coffee and NOWโ€”farm boxed produce & local products.

The product of our collaborative mission with local agencies, local government, and PEOPLE expressing need for sustaining a community experience around good food choices;โ€”this mutual effort since May 2018 was to develop the 2021 Opening of Schuyler County's own gathering/marketplace of Farm Products and Produce lovingly called...

MONTOUR MARKET. 

Now with SARS CoV-2 affecting our lives for critical food supplies and our own Schuyler County farm product distribution disruptions, we started Montour Market for seasonal weekly produce box sales at our existing Montour House location.

Montour Market design 0; an immediate way forward

Montour Market by NORTH NEW YORK LLC

Montour Market is started ahead of plan (June 1!) and weโ€™ve named this phase with passion and hope: design zero. Design 1 was the original start date of January 2021 but then we were faced with a SARS CoV-2 pandemic which escalated concerns among our friends and stakeholders that we could be dealing with some grave challenges over time here in Montour Falls, Watkins Glen and our whole county regarding food supply. 

Our stakeholders want food stability and local food sources. They are an amazing blend of local non-profits, village government, Schuyler County Partnership for Economic Development, doctors & nurses, educators (nutritionists, public health specialists), other artists & designers, businesses and villagers. 

We are in this โ€œdesign 0โ€ phase, connecting with farms and local food producers to use investment from some key Montour Market stakeholders to purchase Community Sponsored Agriculture (CSA) Shares for 6 months of selling, beginning the first week of June. This is something you, your family and friends from circles around these Cities; Bath, Corning, Elmira, and Villages & Towns; Horseheads, Big Flats, Pine Valley, Millport, Alpine, Mecklenburg, Burdett, Hector, Watkins Glen, Reading, Dundee, Beaver Dams, et al; will want to join in as a food hub experience to grow this experience to design 1 and design 2. 

Along this path you will be helping to feed many in need as special moneys are being fronted to our local villagers. Montour Falls has around a quarter of its residents, and nearly forty percent of families with children, living below the poverty line. In addition, nearly one quarter of households in the Village receive SNAP benefits and our systems will be SNAP ready soon.

In โ€œdesign 0โ€ you are saving some beautiful Schuyler County Farms as we invest in 1000โ€™s of acres of production that has been experiencing double digit growth for the last 2 decades. The green economy is a baseline economy of all of Upstate New York which is healthy and strong. By investing in shares of Montour Market OR EVEN simply volunteer to come to our new food hub, help, and then purchase shares to take home, you are plugging in to the strength of this new economy. 

 We look forward to seeing you soon (within the limits of NYS & CDC guidance for Covid-19)...

Love & Hope-
