PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- An indoor farmers market in Pleasantville is about to open for the holiday shopping season and will run until March.
The Pleasantville Farmers Market with 40 vendors runs Saturdays, from Dec. 3 to March 25, at Pleasantville Middle School.
Products include winter-grown vegetables, humanely raised meats and regionally sourced prepared foods; apples, squashes, root vegetables, cheeses, honey and preserves.
“While we are always striving toward improvement, we feel that the market is extremely vibrant and healthy as we enter our fifth indoor season,” says Peter Rogovin, president and chairman of Foodchester Inc., the not-for-profit organization that runs the market.
“We have a strong mix of vendors, all of whom are committed to the success of the market by bringing the highest-quality goods and their substantial knowledge to our shoppers every week.”
Among the vendors are newcomers Aba’s Falafel of Clinton Corners, Teagevity of Nyack and The River Garden of Catskill.
Prepared foods and ingredients for seasonal dishes, along with holiday foods for gifts, like chutneys, jams, granolas, honey, maple syrups, fruit tarts, strudels or pies and handcrafted items, will be available.
The market's produce comes from three winter-growing farms -- two of which are certified organic.
The market accepts Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program electronic cards.
The market's hours are 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at Pleasantville Middle School, 40 Romer Ave. It will be closed Saturday, Dec. 24.
On April 1, the outdoor Pleasantville Farmers Market will open in Memorial Plaza.
