Jar Return Program


Have a few empty jars? Then we have a deal for you – we will now be implementing a Jar Return Program.

At each market and festival we attend we’ll have jar return punch cards that look like this:


These cards enable you to bring your used jars back to us in exchange for a free jar of jam. You can return your jars one at a time or all at once, whichever works best for you – just don’t forget your card! For every ten jars of any size (6oz, 4oz or 2oz) returned, you will be eligible to receive a free jar of your choice!

Market | A Midsummer Night’s Picnic

This Thursday we will not be attending the Clinton Farmers’ Market but will instead be a part of the Little Falls Midsummer Night’s Picnic.

Third Thursday in Little Falls announces an “enhanced super” Third Thursday with a Midsummer Night’s Picnic on July 16.

The community is invited to bring their own picnic lunch – including blanket – to historic Canal Place.

Food will be available for purchase at Ole Sal’s Creamery, Canal Side Inn, and Piccolo.

Also featured is a small vendor fair with picnic food and interactive crafting, such as bracelet making. This fair will begin at 4 p.m.

Laura Powers, an organizer for Third Thursday in Little Falls, says “Surrounded by old mill buildings rich with history, children will enjoy free summer lawn games and traditional maypole dancing hosted by Just Dance Studio. Also in this artistic center of the City will be free plein air watercolor lessons in front of the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts and a free poetry in chalk event hosted by Guerilla Haiku Movement.”

Think Local member Jessica Kelly said, “This midsummer picnic has come to life through the hard work of residents, merchants, the City of Little Falls and generous organizations including the Little Falls Family YMCA and CNY Arts. It demonstrates the positive momentum and exciting things happening in Little Falls.” Some of these exciting things Kelly mentioned include the Little Falls Summer Band Series and an inaugural Little Falls Cheese Festival on Saturday, July 11.

“The SUPER Third Thursday program is a great way to keep families engaged with the City during a very busy summer season. They serve as a nice bridge between the larger festivals including our annual Canal Celebration in August.” Kelly went on to say, “There is a lot happening in our City with new business and activities, and we want to help showcase that to the public.”

Other entertainment offered at the picnic:

‘Kids Dream Big’ Talent Show hosted by Mike Carroll and Dan Sargent with sign-ups beginning at 5 p.m. and kid-friendly entertainment in between the children’s acts.
LiFT (Little Falls Theater) will perform a preview from their upcoming Shakespeare in the Park production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ at 6:30 p.m.
The Steve Falvo Easy Money Big Band performing live music from 7-9:30 p.m.
The festivities wrap up with free Solar and Star Gazing from 5-10 p.m. hosted by the Mohawk Valley Astronomical Society.
The event is open to the public as are all other Third Thursday events in Little Falls.

The goal of Third Thursday events is to showcase the “wonderful amenities within Little Falls that help to drive the local economy, and shine a bright light on the City’s pulse.” – via
