Typically held outdoors on Sundays during summer and fall months, the Irvington Farmers’ Market has not only moved inside as of January 14, but also transitioned to Saturdays. The market is open from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. every second and fourth Saturday of the month through April 22nd.
According to Pascale Le Draoulec, the Farmers’ Market Director for Bronxville, Hastings-on-Hudson, Chappaqua, and Irvington, the date change accommodates the river town resident’s demand. The very popular Hastings indoor market, held on every first and third Saturday of the month, intentionally alternates with Irvington, sharing some of the expected 30 vendors.
Also, with Chappaqua no longer hosting a winter market, it directs consumers to Irvington and provides the opportunity for Chappaqua’s vendors to showcase product in a new town.

Keeping in tow with the market’s mission statement “to provide the community with fresh, local produce (within 200 miles) direct from field to table,” there will be some new additions.
Look for Mangalitsa by Mosefund Farms in NJ, who sells upscale charcuterie to world-famous restaurants like Aquavit, The French Laundry, and Eleven Madison Park.
Then pick up specialty breads from an artisan micro-bakery Wave Hill Breads (from Norwalk, CT).
You can also still buy fresh mozzarella from the perennial favorite Joe Tomato (from White Plains), sharpen your knives at Ready Set Sharp (from Pelham), and indulge in cow-to-caramel confections from La Petite Occasion (from Somers).

There will be plenty of produce with farms like Sun Sprout Farm (from Chester in NYS’s Black Dirt region), Deep Roots (from Hudson, NY) and Dan Madura Farms (from Goshen, NY). Three different meat vendors will be participating, like upstate New York’s Stone & Thistle Farms, as well as fish purveyor Pura Vida Fishery from Long Island.
