Fresh seasonal produce is what summer is all about. Visiting a farmers market is a great opportunity to support local businesses. Many farmers offer pre-orders, drive-through, and slots to shop by appointment, to keep with safety norms. (And they might have a request should you visit - don’t touch the produce.)
Here’s a list of markets open in the Westchester area.
About 50 vendors feature organic produce including cheese, honey, sweets and baked goods. This market is open through the year to get seasonal produce. Open on Saturday’s from 8:30am to 1pm.
Open and even offering curbside pick-up, this farmers market is known for goat cheese feta, local wine, meat, fish and more. They are open on Saturdays from 8:30am to 1:30p with the first hour (8:30am to 9:30am) open only for senior citizens and at-risk (immunocompromised) customers.
