I’m writing to share an update for the Croton-on-Hudson Farmers Market for this Sunday. First and foremost, these are the glory days for local corn, peaches, berries, squash, and much more. Happy summertime!
The market is open every Sunday, from 9 am to 2 pm, in the parking lot off of Municipal place. It features delicious fruits and vegetables, fresh fish, pasture-raised chicken and eggs, amazing breads and baked goods, goat cheese varieties, granola, and more. I wish to highlight that the farmers sell gorgeous farm bouquets, too. I’ve attached a photo of a bouquet from Newgate Farms. How nice to have these lovelies on the picnic table…
This week the market welcomes three rotating day vendors, too: Little Bird Cookie Company, North Winds Lavender Farm, and Taiim Falafel Shack.
And Wave Hill Breads has two new breads to try: Cranberry Walnut Bread and Pumpernickel Ficelle. The Pumpernickel Ficelle is made with dark rye berries, coffee, chocolate, molasses, & caraway seeds. They’re offering it for a $1 off this Sunday; regularly $5, now $4. This is in addition to their weekly assortment of breads, croissants, and other baked goodies.
Thank you all for supporting the local farmers and food makers at the market!
