...finding a "north" experience in community sustainability and the best coffee.

The product of our collaborative mission with local agencies, local government, and PEOPLE expressing need for sustaining a community experience around good food choices;—this mutual effort since May 2018 was to create the 2021-2022 Development of Schuyler County's own gathering/marketplace of Farm Produce, Local High-craft Products and Learning—lovingly called...

MONTOUR MARKET.

Design Zero; an immediate way forward

Montour Market by NORTH NEW YORK LLC

Montour Market is started ahead of plan (June 1, 2020!). We 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. 

During this “design 0” phase, we connected with some initial farms and local food producers using investment from some key Montour Market stakeholders to purchase Community Sponsored Agriculture (CSA) Shares. Many of our family and friends have joined in as a food hub experience to grow this community activity to design 1 and design 2. 

THIS IS ABOUT YOU. THANK YOU!

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 are now set up and "SNAP ready."

In “design zero” you are saving some beautiful Schuyler County Farms as we invest in 1000’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 more of you soon!

Love & Hope-
