Farmers Market in Boniface Circle noon-7PM
Musician Residency - Jazz with Alexis Cole 4PM-6PM every week
The Village of Scarsdale is proud to host "Farmers in the 'Dale." A brand new weekday pop-up farmers market in the heart of Scarsdale. Village Manager, Stephen M. Pappalardo said, "I am pleased the Village is re-introducing a farmers market in Scarsdale’s Village Center after a four year absence. We look forward to providing patrons fresh locally grown produce and other unique options while providing another opportunity for our residents and neighbors to visit Scarsdale and frequent our wonderful local businesses."
Corinna Makris, owner of Village Green Markets and manager of the Peekskill Farmers Market, has been retained as market manager for the pop-up market. "I'm excited to be a part of this new market," Ms Makris said, "Farms and other food vendors have been asking for weekday markets as a new opportunity to connect with customers. The Scarsdale Village Center features many fine small business owners and we're thrilled to be a part of this vibrant shopping area."
Jane Veron, CEO The Acceleration Project (TAP), and member of the Scarsdale Village Board of Trustees, has been working closely with Ms Makris coordinating a marketing campaign.
The market will feature local farms from within a 250 mile radius including an organic option. Other foods to be found are bakeries offering a variety of breads and sweet treats (including non-GMO, and organic), a specialty cheesemonger, honey from a beekeeper based in Verplanck, Hudson Valley maple syrup, and ready-to-eat prepared Middle Eastern foods from Amal Rabadi, owner of Irvington Delight. More vendors, including businesses owned by Scarsdale residents, are being confirmed now, and a full list of vendors will be announced soon.
The Scarsdale Farmers Market is a pilot program operating Thursdays, from noon until 7:00 p.m., in Boniface Circle. After this pop-up market event ends, the Village will gather feedback from consumers and merchants, and then determine if the market will return for a full season in beginning in May 2018.
