This is the 16th year of Franklin Farmers’ Market providing a venue for local bakers, craftsmen, and farmers on the lawn of Chapel Hall, which was built in the 1850s as part of the Delaware Literary Institute. A half century later, this three-story post-and-beam Greek Revival became the temple of the Free and Accepted Masons, Lodge #562. For the last quarter century, it has housed the Franklin Stage Company, offering free professional theater
The entire village of Franklin is on the National Historic Registry, and a self-guided walking tour is available. It is situated on State Highway 357, part of the historic Catskill/Susquehanna Turnpike, which in the early 1800s was a main route from the Hudson River landings to the western frontier.
Breakfasts and lunches are offered around the corner on Main Street at The Tulip and the Rose Café and Yokel restaurant.
Market is a community effort: hosted by Franklin Stage Company and managed by Franklin Local.
