Grumbles in village of Catskill about market's move

After almost a decade at Catskill Point in the village of Catskill, the local farmer's market is moving to the center of town, reports The Daily Mail. Not everyone is happy about it:

Kay Stamer, executive director of the Greene County Council on the Arts, who has organized the artisan market and accompanying music components of the market, expressed disappointment in Seeley’s decision. “I am very, very sad that it is going out of the park that we worked so hard to build,” she said. “Even though it is a County park, it is such a wonderful thing to have in our Village; we have the Catskills and the Hudson River and that is what we were about promoting.”

A local baker had similar thoughts:

“It is a shame that they gave away something that was unique to Catskill and are making it an event that everybody has,” she said.
