Urban Farms Market on Broad Avenue Reopens for Summer Season



Alicia Fahrner relocated from Brooklyn to manager Urban Farms in Binghampton.

Urban Farms Market, located at the intersection of Sam Cooper and Tillman, has reopened for the summer with a new manager but the same mission: to provide fresh and healthy food to the residents of Binghampton.

Store manager Alicia Fahrner moved to Memphis from Brooklyn, where she worked for several farmers markets in the New York City boroughs. For now, she is focusing on increasing the number of vendors at the market in time for the busy summer months.

“We can buy produce wholesale from vendors to sell, or they can set up their own stands,” Fahrner said.

Fahrner also encourages artisan startups to stop by, because she hopes to grow the market’s selection of baked goods and locally made products. For now, the market is carrying produce and flowers from nearby Urban Farms, along with groceries such as Las Delicias chips, salsa and guacamole, Peace Bee honey and milk from Rock Springs Dairy.

I was particularly enamored with the market’s impressive bunches of fresh dill and basil, along with its local eggs. When I peeked inside the cartoon, I was thrilled to find a rainbow of earth tones, including a copper-colored egg and one with brown speckles.

The market is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 1 to 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
