Hello Everyone!

Come Celebrate With Us!

Fall is almost here and with its arrival is our Fall Open House and Four Year Birthday Party on Saturday, September 10th, 2016 10am - 5pm.  Come join us as we celebrate an amazing four years.  It has been such an adventure.  Starting with construction in January 2012, opening with 35 vendors nine months later,we have since grown to over 100 vendors, opened a health food store, and have invested extensively in redoing rooms and keeping things fresh.

For this special day vendors have been bringing in all sorts of fall decorations, and our merchandisers have been displaying them beautifully in our themed rooms.   Since our core group of vendors will be helping that day, and many others as well it is a great time to meet the people who hand make many of our items or in some other way make the Village such a special place.

The Mountain Men Little League team will be here selling hot dogs, chips, pop, and water so you can shop around and then sit down, rest, and enjoy lunch with us and at the same time help support their team.

Featured Products

We have lots of fall decorations.  Whether it be signs, pumpkins, garland, lights, flags we have it.  Every week (usually Wednesday or Thursday) we post new pictures of items onto our website and our Facebook page.  A picture is worth a thousand words as they say.

Author Bill Robertson has his new book out called Misdeeds and Misadventures.  It is a collection of action stories for men. There are two tales from the Civil War, two stories from WW I, and a couple of gangster yarns. There are also scary fishing trips and hunting adventures with startling twists. One of the hunting stories even takes place in Indian Creek! Bill writes "This book is meant as a tribute to Ernest Hemingway who had a huge influence on my writing style. Like Hemingway, I use personal experience as a springboard for my fiction. The stories are told in everyday language and have believable settings filled with sensory details."

Our antique furniture continues to be a huge success this year.  Several vendors have done an absolutely excellent job offering great quality, pieces with incredible character, and very good pricing creating a truly winning combination.  Additionally, our new clothing line continues to be very well received, and the vendor has brought in a wonderful fall line-up of items.

Alvie, one of our local farmers has a new fresh garlic harvest that is on the drying rack air curing that should be here shortly along with his potato harvest.  Garlic is a fantastic vegetable that adds great flavor to home cooked meals, and is extremely healthy for you.  He also has an informative and interesting blog that you can visit so you can learn more about what he does.  https://wooleylot.wordpress.com.  As the saying goes:  get to know your local farmer, and here is a great way to do that.

A fresh patch of summer honey just arrived this week.  The bees worked hard going to the many wildflowers in the Limestone, NY area bringing you a wonderful healthy fresh local food that can be used in a variety of ways.  Summer honey tends to be lighter in color due to the flowers that are blooming.  Local honey is far superior to regular store bought honey for many reasons so stop on by for something local, that tastes great, and is healthy for you as well.

Keeping with the farming theme, our Seed Saver Exchange seeds will continue to be 50% off through the Open House date of Saturday, September 10th.  After which the seeds will be pulled.  This is a great time to stock up for next year or do a fall planting of selected vegetables, especially if you are using season extenders.
