Hallelujah! It’s that time of year when the outdoor farmers’ markets are back in operation.
And Westchester certainly has an abundance of them. Down to Earth Farmers’ Market in New Rochelle (at City Hall) opens June 1; visit on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. If you have a hankering for North Indian-style chutneys that are vegan and free of allergens and fat, head over to the farmers’ markets in Larchmont or Rye (at the Metro North upper lot or the Theodore Fremd Avenue parking lot, respectively) to stock up on product from the Bombay Emerald Chutney Company.
TaSH, the market in Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow, reopens May 26 at Patriots Park. The Chappaqua market is back at the town’s train station on Saturdays. You may want to visit their website for some recipe inspiration – like Wontons with Strawberries and Ice Cream – before heading over there (chappaquafarmersmarket.org).
The Hastings Farmers’ Market resumes in the library lot on the first Saturday in June. And the John Jay Homestead Farm Market is open for business; in addition to seasonal and fresh foods, they feature local musical talent and craftsmen. Opening day for the Bronxville Farmers’ Market was mid-May; there, you’ll find specialty pickles, barbecue, spirits, pies, jams and olive oils, among other items.[Please note the above is not an exhaustive list of all the farmers’ markets in Westchester County.]
