2012 Farmers Markets in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam


Every year before the farmers markets open, we forget.

We forget how a real strawberry — one grown right here and picked hours before market — tastes sweet and fresh. We forget how tender baby lettuces can be; how crisp and peppery are the first radishes.

So thank goodness for June. Nearly all our markets — more than 30 this year — are back.

And besides the chance to buy local produce, hormone-free meat, crusty bread and delectable sweets, there’s another reason to remember to shop at farmers markets: a sense of community.

It’s a thrill to welcome back familiar farmers, fishmongers, bread bakers, cheese makers — even the musician strumming guitar while you shop.

Community is one reason the Mahopac farmers market opened in the parking lot of Temple Beth Shalom, Rabbi Eytan Hammerman says.

“You’re supposed to be connected to your food as much as possible,” he says. “This goes back thousands of years.”

For a similar reason, personal chef Karen Symington Meundell and her family opened a new market in Yorktown this year. The market is a nonprofit one, and Meundell donates the proceeds to a local charity of the week, or COW. (Get it?)

Yorktown and Mahopac are the only new markets this year, but two markets have changed a bit: The Market@PepsiCo in Purchase is under new management and has moved to Wednesdays; the Cold Spring Market has moved to the grounds of Boscobel, which has really “upped the picnic potential,” says market manager Steven Bates.

But really all markets have picnic potential. So get out there and enjoy those strawberries, lettuces and radishes. The just-picked, only-in-summer flavors will come rushing back to you — we promise. Note: The online version of this article at LoHud.com lists the vendors at each market.

  1. While Hilltop is certainly a worthy endeavor, I don’t see why you have a farm stand listed here with farmers markets, especially when the listing acknowledges that it is a stand. There are other farm stands in Yorktown that would be listed if you were being complete.

    Also, you have Pocantico Hills listed after Yorktown on Friday (i.e., not alphabetical).

  2. Gwenn Pietrantoni on

    Hi Liz – you are missing the farmers market in Mt. Kisco. It’s outdoors for the summer at the Boys and Girls club.
