Downtown Gloversville is a community that is place focused and people lead.
Fulton County Center for Regional Growth and the Gloversville Downtown Development Specialist are proud to announce the second Twilight Market season, a monthly event in the heart of downtown Gloversville. The first market of the season will be held Friday, July 13, 2018 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. along North Main Street in Gloversville. The Twilight Market will feature a small farmers market, live music, children’s activities and more. Full details are available at www.downtowngloversville.org.
Vendors present on July 13, 2018 include:
- Denique Vintage Designs
- Euro Delicacies
- Leaning Tree Designs
- Slate Valley Farms
- Smart Cosmetics
- Vashti’s Kitchen Delights
The Twilight Market will be held three times over the course of the summer on July 13, August 10 and September 14. All vendors are producer-only and from New York State; many are located within a 50-mile radius of Gloversville. Community groups will be present throughout the season as well.
“We are excited to once again bring this great family-friendly event to downtown Gloversville,” said Jennifer Jennings, Gloversville Downtown Development Specialist. “The Twilight Market will welcome hundreds of people each month and we are ready to show off all that Downtown has to offer. This year’s event will be bigger and better than before and showcase not just the vendors present, but the dedicated shop owners who make our business district so distinct.”
The event’s layout spans along North Main Street between Church and Fremont Streets. To ensure the safety of both market-goers and drivers, North Main Street will be closed at Fulton Street starting at 2:30 p.m. on market days. Family-friendly activities and live music will round out the evening’s festivities. “Our goal is to get the community out and about, walking up and down North Main Street, visiting with friends, family and neighbors,” Jennings noted.
Event sponsors include Key Partner Nathan Littauer Hospital, media sponsor The Leader Herald, major sponsor Fulton County Center for Regional Growth, community supporters Kinderhook Bank and North Country Ecological Services and friends of the market Fage USA, Ricmar Printing & Design and To the Moon and Back.
“Nathan Littauer’s mission is to bring healthcare to our community,” said Cheryl McGrattan, Vice President of Marketing, Communications & Community Relations at Nathan Littauer Hospital, key partner of the Twilight Market. “We are also tireless advocates for prevention as we strive to improve public health. Therefore, this event is a good match to our mission. The Twilight Market is designed to encourage walkability in the urban core, creating a sense of place and connection to the community. We are happy to sponsor this event for our neighbors, patients and for our employees.”
