The Best Winter Farmers’ Markets to Visit in Westchester

When the mercury drops, here are the Westchester County farmers' markets you can still shop at all winter long.

In Westchester, it isn’t an exaggeration to say that farmers’ markets often serve as the beating heart of our communities, so it’s a good thing the market spirit doesn’t go into hibernation when the weather grows cold. Here are seven of our favorite markets that are open and stocked all winter long.

Hastings Farmers Market

Saturdays, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Madura’s famous selection of mushrooms is the brainchild of Dan Jr., a fourth-generation Polish farmer who began cultivating fungi in 1977. You’ll also find necessities like cauliflower, potatoes, ginger, and a variety of greens, all grown in Madura’s signature rich black soil.
