DJDC Winter Market Runs Through Jan. 31

The Downtown Jamestown Winter Market will remain in the Dr. Lillian Vitanza Ney Renaissance Center on Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Jan. 31.

Those who shop at the winter market have been receiving free produce with every purchase. For every $5 produce purchase, every customer will receive a $1 coupon to purchase additional product. Coupons will be distributed upon checkout and may be used the same day or for future purchases. There is no limit to the number of coupons distributed.

“This is a great program we are able to offer with the support of the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation,” said Tiffani Conti, DJDC special projects manager. “We are proud to offer such great incentive programs for our customers. We understand how important eating fresh fruits and vegetables are and this is one small way we can assist in purchasing those items locally. The market will continue to operate through January 31 and we encourage everyone to shop local. “

Both participating farms, Busti Cider Mill and Farm Market and Small Meadows Farm, have an array of fresh produce that is currently being grown in winter greenhouses. Available produce includes apples, brussel sprouts, collards, kale, peppers, lettuce, arugula, salad mix, eggplant, tomatoes, leeks, rutabaga, parsnips, cabbage, onions, shallots, winter squash, potatoes, carrots, pea shoots, and garlic. Fresh, local eggs, cheese, goat milk fudge, cob popcorn, home-ground flours, dry beans, and fresh-frozen meat including roasting chickens, goat meat, and pork are also available.
