One of the area’s newest farmers markets is on Anderson Hill Road just past the entrance to Pepsico across from Purchase College in Purchase. It’s there on Tuesdays, which is a convenient midweek day for those of us who might run out of our local vegetables and meat after our Saturday shopping.
There are only a few vendors, but they’ve got you covered for whatever your local needs may be: meat, produce, fruit, cheese baked goods and plants. There’s even a booth from Pepsico’s cafeteria where I picked up a killer grilled chicken Caesar salad to go.
More, after the jump.
I’ve been meaning to post these photos from Purchase for almost a month now! So you’ll forgive me if some of the produce is no longer in season. I went to the market on June 22.
Migliorelli seems to be at almost every market I go to. I don’t know how they do it! Here are some of their apples:
Baked goods from Magpie Bakery:
Kind of hard to see, but here’s Northwind Farm. They sell meat and poultry.
Here’s owner Richard Biezynski holding a chicken for the camera:
Someone shopping at his booth:
This vendor sells cheeses from all over the Hudson Valley. I love him. He’s at Nyack on Thursdays and used to be at Palisades in the winter, too. The Old Chatham Sheepherding Camembert is delicious. He also has cheese from Sprout Creek and others:
He makes bread and sells smoked trout, too:
Also, some plants for purchase:
And the market is right next to the Pepsico Community Garden:
And here was the vendor selling sandwiches and salads from Pepsico.
I understand they’ve added several vendors since I was there in June, so I plan to go back soon. (One particular mention on the market’s facebook page: Silver Petals Farm, which grows more than 50 heirloom flowers.)
The market is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays near 800 Anderson Hill Road, Purchase. Let me know what you get there!
