Entering May, many of our farmer's markets in Westchester and the Hudson Valley are opening and moving outdoors. It is great news for families who want to eat healthier. At a farmer’s market, what is grown, baked or created for you to purchase typically has not come more than 100 miles from your location. With all the local farms in our region, we are blessed with a great selection.
Not all farmer's markets are the same. While most have a good selection of locally produced fresh food, some have more vendors, some resemble a food festival with a selection of baked goods, ice creams, food trucks, wine, and more. Some have activities throughout the whole day like live music, dancing, and activities for children.
Below is a list of our favorite farmer's markets in Westchester. It is by no means a complete list, but just a few that we found have the most vendors and activities. Some we probably have missed just because we never got a chance to visit, or because the information on their website is not updated yet.
For a complete list of farmer's markets in Westchester, visit our resources page here. We will be adding a list of farmer's markets in the other counties onto our resource guide soon.
