The Chappaqua Farmers Market (CFM) celebrates its 9th season with shoppers from all over Westchester discovering New Castle’s gem of a market right in front of the historic Chappaqua Train Station.
The market is committed to bringing locally raised and produced foods to the community, creating a connection between shoppers and small scale food producers in the Lower Hudson Valley. Every Saturday morning, CFM brings a sophisticated vendor mix, Provencal vibe, stress-free parking to the shady, promenade location. CFM is open 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
Farmers and food-producers are all located within a 200-mile radius of CFM, to lessen negative environmental impact while ensuring fresh products. The market offers farm-fresh produce, much of it organic, pastured-meats and poultry, eggs, fish, dairy, bread and prepared foods like wood-burning pizzas made with market ingredients. At the heart of the market, on the green, you can find live music and children’s activities every week as well as regular cooking demos. CFM acts as a de facto “town square” by offering a venue for community groups, entertainment, and serendipitous meetings, and by drawing residents and visitors to downtown Chappaqua. chappaquafarmersmarket.org.
