The Pleasantville Farmers’ Market, the largest farmers market in Westchester County, will begin its second annual indoor market season this Saturday in the Pleasantville Middle School from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Ranked #1 in New York State in the American Farmland Trust 2013 I Love My Farmers Market Celebration during its recent 16th outdoor season, the market aims to be just as popular with shoppers behind closed doors. Owned by the Village of Pleasantville and operated under contract by Foodchester, a non-profit, community-based organization created to run Pleasantville Farmers Market, the Market’s focus is to be attentive to community needs and visitor input.
With more than 40 vendors providing fresh, regionally-grown foods such as humanely-raised meats, winter-grown vegetables, prepared foods sourced with regional ingredients, there’s plenty of reasons to pay a visit.
“We are thrilled to be able to continue providing access to popular new summer vendors while also bringing in some exciting additions.” says Peter Rogovin, President and Chairman of Foodchester.
The market is so popular throughout the county, that it has become a big part of the village’s identity.
“We are proud to have not only the largest market in Westchester – but also a great market that serves the community and brings thousands of people to visit Pleasantville,” Peter Scherer, the Mayor of the Village of Pleasantville, said.
