Pleasantville indoor Farmers Market Open Saturday March 25

The Market completes its indoor season this Saturday, March 25th, before moving to Memorial Plaza to begin the outdoor season next week. And yes, access to fresh Aba's Falafel starts with the outdoor season on April 1.

At the Outdoor Market shoppers will greet new vendors, notice many Rotation Vendors shift to weekly schedules (or increased visits), and see Little Seed Gardens, Cowberry Crossing Farm, Neversink Farm and Gajeski Produce bring mounds of fresh, indoor-grown produce while we wait for the region's outdoor-growing season to get underway.

Our kick off for another great summer of weekly programs (Culinary, Music, Kids events) remains in late May, and once again it will start with Marco the Magician. At that time all remaining seasonal vendors (ie: North Winds Lavender Farm, J&A Farm) will joins us as well.

Phelps Health Tip:

Nature's Plants ARE A Healthy Recipe

Lead Sponsor Phelps Hospital Northwell Health shares the following: "The benefits of antioxidants show up everywhere, but the synergy that occurs between the vitamins, minerals, fiber, phytochemicals, and antioxidants when we eat whole plant foods may reduce the risk of some serious chronic conditions and cancers. Eat more whole plant foods and do it more frequently!"

What A Fine School District It Is

Saturday marks the end of the indoor season. We thank the Pleasantville Union Free School District Board of Education and administration for their generosity, hospitality, and community spirit. It cannot be overstated how much the farmers and area residents appreciate the cozy Middle School and its dedicated support staff each winter.

More Thank Yous

Thank you to our Lead Sponsors, Sponsors, Supporters and to the community members who help make the Market happen. Thanks to the Village of Pleasantville, the Pleasantville Chamber of Commerce and the many local businesses and neighbors who support the Pleasantville Farmers Market's mission. And thanks to you for coming out to shop and having a delicious good time with us, week after week.

Finally: Great Vendors Make A Great Market
