(WBNG Binghamton) Progress on a permanent farmer's market in Broome County is taking longer than expected with its exact location in question.

In October of 2013 it was determined that the farmer's market at Otsiningo Park would take longer than expected due to remain found during an archaeological dig.

The dig was required by the New York State Parks Grant.

The results of that dig have not been released by the county.

The county had named Otsiningo Park as the location of the market, but now says it's exploring all of its options for the location of the permanent farmer's market.

Funding for the farmer's market has come from several different areas.

New York State Parks have allotted $400,000, another $100,000 came from the Low Income Investment Fund and $250,000 came from the Broome County Industrial Development Agency.

Broome County says its continuing to move forward with the permanent structure but doesn't have an official open date or location.
