Nyack Winter Farmers’ Market Opens
December 7, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
Local food and community fun move indoors for Nyack’s Sixth Annual Winter Farmers’ Market indoors at the Nyack Center on Thursday, December 7. Operated by the Chamber, the Market runs from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm in the Nyack Center at 58 Depew Avenue (corner of Depew and South Broadway) and will be open every Thursday during the winter months through March 29, 2018.
Opening day music will be provided by Jeff Rubin from 9:00 am to 11:00 am, Jeff Doctorow from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. and Ian Moore from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. As a special treat for shoppers who need a bit of holiday stress reduction, Michelle Solomon of Massage Therapeutics will be providing 5-minute free massages.
The Market specializes in local, seasonal produce, baked goods and artisanal wares, and offers great opportunities for holiday gift-shopping — with unique items such as the now-famous Nyack note cards, canvas market bags and sketches by artist-in-residence Bill Batson — plus hand-made clothing and toys, natural skin care treatments, soaps and lotions, teas, sweets and treats, and much more.
Among the weekly vendors this year are Adams Chocolate, American Pride Seafood, Blooming Hill Farms (organic), Campanelli’s Poultry Farm, Kiernan Farm, Orchards of Concklin, Rockland Farm Alliance and Teagevity. Rotating vendors include Coyote Kitchen, Hummingbird Ranch, Mediterranean Delicacies, Momo Dressing, and Petropoulos Family Groves.
Newcomers to the Market include Olde York Farm Distillery & Cooperage and Lakeside Maple. Olde York runs a farm-to-cask distillery and cooperage, using grain grown in the Hudson Valley to produce limited releases of micro batch spirits. Lakeside makes vegan, gluten-free trail mixes using quality almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, maple syrup, kosher salt and dried cranberries to create the perfect balance of sweet, salt and sustenance.
