Chappaqua Farmers Market
December 4, 2010 @ 4:00 am - 8:00 am
The NEW Chappaqua Farmers Market launches its Inaugural Winter Season on Saturday, Dec. 4. Local/regional farmers and vendors will highlight this weekly indoor event. Eat “local” all year long! From Saturday, Dec. 4th, until May, an expanded version of our late summer market will be held in the Parish Hall of St. Mary’s Church at 191 South Greeley Avenue, between the Bell Middle School and the Chappaqua Library. In its new configuration, the market will feature such delicacies as locally-caught fish (and scallops so fresh & sweet you’ll want to pop them in your mouth right there on the spot), lamb, pork and beef raised on a bio-dynamic farm (Cowberry Crossing) in Hudson, NY, whole free-range duck, artisanal cheeses, smoked sausages, Hudson Milk Company’s acclaimed dairy products, and of course, the ever-popular Picklelicious pickles on a stick. Think there won’t be any greens at a winter market? Think again: Aqua Farms will have bok choy, tender heirloom lettuces, Swiss chard, curly kale, spinach and culinary herbs all year long thanks to their greenhouse and hydroponic growing techniques. Also, in addition to its own selection of greenhouse greens, Madura Farms will offer a dizzying array of mushroom varieties, like enoki and Hen of the Woods to jazz up your risottos and omelets. Dutch Desserts will feature its European-style tarts (one taste of their dark chocolate tart and you’re hooked). And, Bread Alone will offer its hugely popular panoply of breads from rustic miche loaves to San Francisco-style sourdough as well as their signature Morning Glory muffins. True Food of Nyack will offer its tantalizing prepared salads and burritos made with ingredients from local farms. Tierra Farm, out of Valatie, NY., will sell their organic, seasoned nuts – like tamari almonds and ginger cashews as well as their unctuous nut butters. Also joining us on opening day will be the Chappaqua Garden Club who will be selling their holiday wreaths and greens. We hope you will make a stop at the Chappaqua Farmers Market part of your winter weekend routine and that what you find there will inspire you to cook delicious, seasonal dishes all winter long. Twice a month, the market will offer knife-sharpening services courtesy of Ready Set Sharp (also known as Matt the Knife) so don’t forget to bring your dull blades to the market on the first and third Saturday of the month. Matt, who will be there on opening day, will bring your blades (from paring knives to pruning shears) back to life in the time it takes to fill your shopping basket and visit with your neighbors over a cup of joe. You don’t have to pick up coffee on the way since Mitar, from the Chappaqua Train Station’s Café La Track, is part of our vendor line-up! Market hours are every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bring the kids – storytelling is at 10:30 a.m.
