Oneida County Public Market Gets Federal Grant
Utica, NY (WIBX) - Oneida County has received a $68,000 grant from the U.S Department of Agriculture that will allow the county to move forward with the next phase of the public market at Union Station.The grant will pay for a full-time market manager to grow the operation into a year-round market.
The market will eventually move into space that's being renovated in the long-closed Railway Express Agency wing of Union Station.
Meanwhile, the public market, which had been operating outdoors during the summer and early fall, will move inside the train station for three Saturdays.
The market will be open from 9:00 to 1:00 this Saturday and on November 12th and December 17th.
