On Sunday, April 22nd, the Piermont Farmers Market will open for its 14th season. The market will be held in the M&T Bank parking lot near the corner of Ash Street and Piermont Avenue every Sunday from 9:30am to 3pm through November 18th. The farmers market will continue its tradition of highlighting New York area growers and artisan food makers, with the mission of bringing wholesome and delicious foods to Piermont shoppers and supporting local small farms and food businesses.
The Piermont Farmers Market is a grower-producer market, meaning that vendors must be farmers or make food with ingredients purchased from local farms. The few exceptions to this rule are olive oil, chocolate, tea and coffee vendors who are able to document their sourcing. This season, shoppers can look forward to a wide variety of fruits, vegetables and meats from area farms, including organically grown produce from Deep Roots Farm in Copake, NY. Migliorelli Farm of Tivoli, NY will return with orchard fruits, and Sunset View Farm, located in Oneonta, NY, will bring grass fed beef, pasture-raised meats, poultry and eggs. New this year are McGrath Cheese Company, a micro-sized creamery making European style cheese from Hudson Valley milk, and Brooklyn’s Van Brunt Stillhouse, with their range of whiskeys made with New York grown grain. The full schedule of shopper favorites and new vendors attending this year is available at www.downtoearthmarkets.com.
Shoppers will find ample free parking in the lots off Flywheel Park.
