OC farmers market changing hours, seeking more vendors

From staff reports

Some changes are coming to the Oil City farmers market in July.

Beginning next week, the open-air curb market will be changing its hours and will operate from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursdays, through Sept. 30, on lower Central Avenue near Christ Episcopal Church and the Oil City Library.

The market currently has two produce vendors, as well as vendors of baked goods, soap and Native American items, Mark Elliston, the priest at Christ Episcopal Church, said.

The market is changing hours in hopes of attracting more vendors, Elliston added.

“The farmers market was going well (in previous years), but COVID beat us up good,” Elliston said.
