On Wednesday, June 2nd the Croton Farmers Market will re-open at the former skate park on Municipal Place and Riverside Avenue (map). This season, in addition to fresh seasonal and certified organic produce, local wines, cheeses, organic breads and grass-fed meat, the market, which runs from 1:30pm to 6:30pm every Wednesday, will feature three new vendors!
Newgate Farms a 5th generation family farm in East Granby CT, will offer fresh fruits, vegetables and baked goods; Yona’s Delights, a small family bakery from Brooklyn, will sell artisanal mini- quiches and borekas (puff pastry snack foods originally from the Mediterranean region) and Baked By Susan, a home-based baking business run by Croton resident Susan O’Keefe will feature delicious cookies, brownies, biscotti and crumb cake.
Community Markets will also host cooking demos, live music from local musicians, a corn roast and produce tastings at the market throughout the season. Details will be posted at www.communitymarkets.biz.
