SYRACUSE, N.Y. — The downtown farmers market, presented by the Downtown Committee of Syracuse Inc., opened Tuesday for its 46th season in Clinton Square.

It’ll be available, “rain or shine,” every Tuesday through Oct. 9, the organization said in a news release.

The market is scheduled between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The farmers market has vendors with locally grown fruits, vegetables, plants, flowers, and baked goods. As the growing season continues, the market will feature as many as 50 area farmers and produce dealers each week.

It attracts as many as 5,500 visitors per week, the Downtown Committee said.

The weekly event includes “Lunchtime Live Music Series,” which is held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. “almost” every Tuesday throughout the farmers-market season.

The lunchtime music is made possible through a grant from CNY Arts, the Downtown Committee said.

The Downtown Committee’s farmers-market website will include a schedule of the full lineup “as soon as it is finalized.”
