The seventh annual Ogdensburg GreenMarket will return to Library Park for the summer and fall season on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The popular venue for locally grown produce and meats as well as crafts will also be held on Thursdays beginning May 16 from 2 to 5 p.m. outside Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center at the corner of King Street and Mansion Avenue from 2 to 5 p.m.

Fifteen vendors are scheduled to show up on Saturday, many of them GreenMarket veterans.

“We got some new ones, too,” said Sandra M. Porter, GreenMarket’s manager and executive director of the Greater Ogdensburg of Commerce.
