MAMARONECK INDOOR FARMERS MARKET!
For people who support local farms with their appetite and wallet, here’s good news: the Northeast winter doesn’t have to be bleak.
On Saturday, January 7th, 2012, the Mamaroneck Indoor Farmers Market will open for its fourth season at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church, 168 W. Boston Post Road, in Mamaroneck. The vendors, curated by Community Markets, will offer artisanal products and prepared foods to go, along with produce from greenhouse growing and the time-honored art of cold storage. The market runs every Saturday from 9 am–1 pm through May 19th, 2012.
Even better yet we are heading outside. The church is our backdrop to the fresh air starting Saturday April 14th! Come enjoy the spring and get your local shopping done.
Several new vendors are set to debut: American Pride Seafood, Stone and Thistle Farm, Flour City Pasta, Raaka Chocolate, Amazing Real Live Food Co. (probiotic dairy products), Maura & Nuccia (baked goods) and Stephan’s Blends (family-recipe Polish pierogies). They join a vibrant market already established by popular returning vendors: Bombay Emerald Chutney Company, Christiane’s Backstube (European-style bakery), Coach Farm, Dr. Pickle, Feather Ridge Farm, Flourish Baking Company, Gajeski Produce, Kontoulis Family Olive Oil, Meredith’s Bread, Orwashers Bakery, Thornwood Farm, Tierra Farm, Trotta Foods (Italian specialties) and Migliorelli Farm.
“We’re excited to meet the people from this area of Westchester,” said Glenn Bickelman of American Pride Seafood, “We’re bringing sea scallops, codfish, flounder and other catches from the East End of Long Island. All of our fish are sustainable, meaning we get them when the stocks are high and they’re never depleted.”
Shoppers are encouraged to enjoy the venue’s seating area, where they can visit over coffee for sale by the church. Miriam Haas, founder of Community Markets, is happy to return to St. Thomas’, saying, “We always appreciate the support of the Mamaroneck and Larchmont communities, especially in the winter. Sometimes people don’t know that there are great local foods to be had in the cold months. The shoppers from the summer markets in Larchmont, New Rochelle, Pelham and Rye are loyal -- they’re our core shoppers. This market allows farmers and producers to connect with their customers all year.”
