Local and regional farms remain the focus of the market with both returning and new vendors, which include Cabbage Hill Farm of Mount Kisco, JD Farms of Brewster, John Boys Farm of Cambridge, Mobius Fields of Waccabuc, Do-Re-Me Farms of Orange County and a new young farmer, Caity Flanagan of Two Peas in a Pod Farm.

The market will draw from more than 40 vendors each week, and will offer produce, fruit and flowers, including heirloom varieties, all locally grown, using organic, biodynamic and conventional methods. There will be an array of artisanal baked goods, including vegan and gluten-free offerings, cheese, eggs, meats, fresh seafood, prepared foods, fresh roasted coffee and teas, nut milks and cold pressed juices, hand-made pasta, as well as hand-crafted local products.

Each week the market will host a different non-profit organization.

“We are very excited about our non-profit partnerships. June will be an exciting month as we welcome Bedford 2020, Katonah Village Library and the Katonah Village Improvement Society,” said Jennifer Gordon, market manager. “KVIS, as part of their participation in the month of June, will be presenting a Summer Solstice Yoga celebration. It will begin with a gong ceremony and end in an organic juice toast.” 

Shoppers will enjoy walking among the 19th century farm buildings and are welcome to explore flower, herb and vegetable gardens, a chicken-and-egg co-operative and a 12-hive apiary, along with wooded trails and a pond. They can take a guided tour of John Jay’s Bedford House, discover the Carriage Barn Education and Visitor Center, featuring state-of-the-art computerized interactive displays or explore the site’s five Discovery Centers, filled with hands-on activities.

John Jay Homestead Farm Market, at 400 Jay St., Katonah, will run from Saturday, June 13, through Saturday, Oct. 31, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
