CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – The Chappaqua Farmers Market will take shelter from the cold weather when it moves indoors for the winter season beginning Dec. 1 at Church of St. Mary the Virgin at 191 S. Greeley Ave.
New to the market this winter season is farmer Tim Heuer of Obercreek Farm, who will bring his greenhouse organic baby and Asian greens. Also new to the market is Papa Pasquale’s, Pure Food Sisters, Savor (Savory cookies), and Old Chatham Brewery, which makes hard ciders and small-batch beers. The full list of vendors can be found on the market’s website.
In addition to the locally-grown food, the market will also have knife-sharpening services and community “swaps” with books, sports equipment, costumes and more.
“Our market really found its stride this year,” said Pascale Le Draoulec, market director. “This year we saw more kids at the market than ever before. Face-painting was a big hit and so was our Halloween costume swap. Having the Chamber of Commerce tent was also a great addition. The community is finally starting to view the market as a meeting place, a piazza, if you will.”
The market will be closed this Saturday for the Thanksgiving weekend and on Dec. 29. The market will be open on Dec. 22, however. Hours for the market this season will be 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
