In a continued effort to promote health and wellness, Lakeside is again hosting a bi-weekly Farmers’ Market during the Chautauqua summer season. From 9 a.m. to noon every Tuesday and Friday until Aug. 31, Farmers’ Market vendors will sell fresh produce, honey, herbs and homemade baked goods at Walnut Avenue on the pedestrian walkway between Second and Third Streets in Lakeside.
There will be nine to 10 vendors each day, including DeChant Farms, DTF Enterprises, Great Lakes Gourmet Spice Co., Healthy Bakes By Catherine, My Mother’s Market, Farm Wife Breads and TNT Farms.
The items sold at the Farmers’ Market are grown within a 50-mile radius; this provides Lakeside residents and guests the opportunity to purchase regionally produced goods and contribute to the growth of the local economy.
Reusable Farmers’ Market bags will be sold for $2 at the Lakeside Chautauqua Office, located at 236 Walnut Ave.
A complimentary Shopping/Dining Pass is available at the gates during the Chautauqua summer season (June 23-Sept. 3). This complimentary pass offers admission to the Lakeside grounds for 90 minutes. The pass must be stamped by a Farmers’ Market vendor or a Lakeside Chautauqua Office employee in order to exit Lakeside. Ask the gate attendant for details.
To experience an entire day at Lakeside, admission requires a Daily Gate Pass ($18.50 for adults, $12.75 for youth ages 12-18, and free for children under age 12 and guests over age 90). Partial day passes (three hours) are available for $5.75.
Limited free parking is available at Danbury High School (cars must be registered at the Hoover Auditorium Ticket Office). There is no shuttle service provided to or from the school. To park on the Lakeside grounds or the South Gate Parking Lot, there is a $7.75 auto fee.
