A deal between the Jefferson Valley Mall and Maize Market Management has fallen through and now Karen Symington-Muendell is seeking a new location to house the winter farmers' market.
"The mall went back on their word and we cannot hold the market there," Symington-Muendell said.
The winter farmers' market was supposed to be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays starting Jan. 12 and ending on May 11. The woman said she is now looking for an indoor space in Yorktown – a church, hall, or even an empty store front.
"I have five weekly vendors, and one monthly vendor," Symington-Muendell said. "All vendors carry insurance, as does Maize. We would of course be willing to pay rent."
The outdoor Yorktown farmers' market opened in May and took place at the field behind Yorktown Heights Engine Co #1. Maize Market Management is a not for profit company that formed to run the farmers' market. Each week the organization made a donation to a local charity.
