Summer Sundays are the time for the Waterford Farmer's Market, which sets up at the visitor's center across from the boat docks.
There were several vegetable vendors along with baked goods, local honey, maple syrup, flowers and plants and some jewelry. Maryann bought fresh corn-on-the-cob, and other vegetables for our last run down the Hudson.
And, there are several tour boats that will take folks for a trip to experience the locks.
Waterford, NY like many of the towns we have visited along the Erie Canal are almost museum-like in their faded glory. Old main streets, factories, and residences provide a glimpse into what life was like 50 to 100 years ago.
Now, passed their prime, they lack the resources to modernize and live in a state of either dead or dying.
