Pleasantville Farmers Market: A Look at the Vendors

2

The Pleasantville Farmers Market has among the best selections and the biggest variety of vendors I’ve seen around Westchester. Unfortunately, I’m a little late on this blog post — (I took these photos on June 12! So sorry!)— so some of the fruit and vegetables you’ll see here are no longer available. But I think you’ll still get a good feel for what’s available at this Saturday market by browsing here, as well as from the guest blog post we had earlier in the season. I don’t care if it is almost August, though, I have to lead off the post with my favorite summer fruit, sour cherries:

We’ll have to wait for 2011 to see these guys again! More photos from the market, after the jump.

Now when I went in June, there was a little lunch truck there that uses ingredients from the market to make some of their dishes:

My husband’s wrap:

My chicken-pesto sandwich:

When I was at the market this past Saturday, I didn’t see the truck and some of the vendors had moved spots. So I’m not sure if the truck is gone or just taking a week off.

Here are some of the other vendors at the market:

My favorite fish guy, Captain Rick from Pura Vida Fisheries:

I quite like this meat, too:

And these Feather Ridge Farm chickens and eggs are unbelievable:

Thank you, Pleasantville Farmers Market!

The Pleasantville Farmers Market is on Saturdays in the parking lot next to the train station in downtown Pleasantville. The market’s facebook page is here.

  1. Thanks for posting these photos. They spurred me to (finally!) get up and out of the house on a Saturday to get to this market, about a 20 minute drive from my house. Looking forward to all the great food we can eat and prepare this week.

    Will still go to my local farmers market during the week, but the breadth and depth of Pleasantville is especially welcome. Picked up lunch afterwards at Pony Express, another great find courtesy of Small Bites.
