Village of Ossining’s First Indoor Winter Farmers Market Now Open
The Village of Ossining’s Down to Earth Winter Farmers Market recently debuted its new indoor home at Claremont Elementary School with a ribbon cutting featuring elected officials and community advocates. The market, held every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through March, offers seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh seafood, pasture-raised meats, poultry, and eggs, pickles, cheese, delicious breads and baked goods (both regular and gluten-free), as well as a wide range of prepared foods to go. A live music series, including a jug band and world music for children, will also be a part of the indoor market.
Hosted by the Greater Ossining Chamber of Commerce, the Down to Earth Farmers Market’s Ossining location was founded in 1991. 2015 marks the first year the market has moved inside for the winter thanks to a partnership with the Ossining Union Free School Board, School Superintendent Ray Sanchez, and Claremont Elementary. In April, the market will return to its longstanding home at Spring and Main Streets in downtown Ossining.
