CITY OF BINGHAMTON (WBNG) - The 4th annual Downtown Courtyard Market kicked off July 12 outside the MetroCenter along Court Street in Binghamton.

Shops and vendors set up shop downtown from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and sold honey, candles, cider, tea, books, produce, and more.

12 News spoke with Eliana Epstein, the market manager, about the importance of shopping local and investing in our community. “Supporting local is one of the most important things that you can do and local Binghamton businesses always need your love and you can show them love by coming down to the Downtown Binghamton Courtyard Market,” she said.

Not only did Epstein stress the importance of supporting local, but she also said it’s one of the safest ways to shop because you know exactly where the food is sourced from. This time around, attendees could choose between roughly 15 vendors.

Among those in attendance was Mayor Jared Kraham. “The message of the artisan market is buy local,” he said. “And really this marks a return post-COVID of a lot of the downtown activities that a lot of people miss.”

To see what there is to offer, the market will happen Tuesdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. through October. For more information and any updates regarding this renovated space, search ‘Downtown Courtyard Market’ on Facebook.
