Local Seniors Enjoy Pop-Up Farmers Market

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The residents at Prestwick Chase enjoyed a pop-up farmers market this past week.

Mother-daughter team Meghan Barker and Sharon Anderson, co-owners of Clyde O’Scope Farms, hosted the pop-up market. They offered fresh veggies, flowers, free-range eggs, and home made potpies to residents. Since COVID-19 struck the community this past March, John Rowe, director of marketing at Prestwick, said they have shut down access to the building and asked residents not to leave. To help social distance guidelines, Rowe said his team has done the shopping for each resident.

“We’re doing some shopping for them. Some of the fresh vegetables they might not be thinking about or putting it on their list so now, they can go right outside and grab the fresh produce for themselves,” Rowe said. 

As the second week hosting the market, Rowe said residents have been overjoyed to be able to purchase and enjoy locally produced items. 

“Last week we had a limited supply of things and the residents purchased flowers, potatoes, all sorts of vegetables for themselves. The people that ran it were very happy,” Rowe said.
