Just got a call from Ned Visser, owner of Ned’s Irongate Gourmet Ã¢â‚¬â€ FKA La Boqueria in Nyack. He was calling to let me know of the name change, but also that he’s getting three vendors from the Nyack Farmers Market Ã¢â‚¬â€ which is on hold for the winter Ã¢â‚¬â€ to bring their wares to his store for the next two Thursdays. So far: Dines Farm (meat and poultry), Panzanella’s (mozzarella cheese, crab cakes) and Dr. Pickle (pickles and brined items) will be showing up. He’s hoping for more the week after. The shop is at the top of Main Street just west of Midland.
