Nyack Farmers Market Opens Thursday


Here’s a press release about the activities in June, after the jump.

Local Strawberries are the Star in June
at the Nyack Farmers’ Market!

NYACK, NY- As June approaches, shoppers at the Nyack Farmers’ Market will see an increase of regionally grown fruits and vegetables.  Some of the crops we can look forward to in June are: asparagus, broccoli, herbs, peas, radishes, scallions, lettuce, mesclun, turnip greens, spinach and chard.  At the market you will also find fruit and vegetable plants to plant in your own gardens.  But the main attraction in June is always the ruby red, plump, ripe, just picked strawberries!

The Nyack Farmers’ Market is dedicated to providing the community with easy access to just-picked, regionally grown fruits, vegetables and agricultural products such as fresh cut flowers, bedding plants, cheeses, wine, jams and jellies, pasture feed chickens and eggs, and other food specialties such as baked goods, pickles, quiches, hot sauces and other prepared foods.

  1. Liz, will you reprise the (I forgot the real name…) “what to do with what you bought” feature, like you did last year? I thought it was a lot of fun and found it inspiring for my own meal preparations.
