Congratulations Contest Winners!

ICYMI, the Schenectady Greenmarket just completed a very successful social media contest called #mymarketcreation.  A big shout out to ALL of our contestants who made a beautiful meal with ingredients from the market and shared a photo of it with us using the hashtag.  Congratulations to Susan Smith of Instagram and Jessica P. Jeannotte of Facebook for being the winners at random!  They are lucky enough to win a bag full of goodies from the Schenectady Greenmarket!  It’s amazing what you can make with delicious and local ingredients from the Schenectady Greenmarket.  See you this Sunday at Proctors for some great local goodies.
