At The Souk in Piermont, an Indoor Bazaar with a Middle Eastern twist

Looking for a respite from the winter doldrums? You need not travel far.

A new indoor farmers market called The Souk in Piermont is mixing things up and adding a Middle Eastern twist with a bazaar theme, complete with bubbling soups on wood burning stoves, fresh samosas, spice baked savory cookies and specialty hummus, all from local vendors.

From 10 to 3 p.m. Sundays through May 11, The Souk is held at The Outside In, a gallery across from Sparkill Creek that features fine art, found objects and hand-selected artisan objects. More than 20 vendors will be on hand each week with prepared foods, handmade goods and local farm produce and meat.

Shoppers will be able to peruse art displays, enjoy weekly raffles and musical performances and even become a member.

Membership to “The Souk Society” is free, and benefits include Souk Bucks that can be used in the market as currency and secret members-only giveaways.
