CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Chappaqua Farmers Market is kicking off its opening day at Chappaqua Train Station this Saturday, May 16 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The market features 40 vendors and it will be open every Saturday through Nov. 21.
Tunes from Milton will kick off opening day to feature entertainment. There will be many activities to entertain children in the grassy “kids zone, ” like Camp Kiwi and the Westchester Circus Camp.
Dough Nation pizza will celebrate its fifth anniversary of its pizza being made in a wood-burning oven at the market. In addition, one of the signature vendors, Stone Barns, will be back again with their coddled pastured meats, just-laid eggs and stunning cut flowers.
The Dough Nation Pizza Oven will be here every other week and founders have arranged a second roving wood-fired pizza truck to alternate (Doug Cullen's Itsa Pizza Truck, from High Falls, N.Y.)
Sohha Yogurt, voted best yogurt in New York last year by New York Magazine, is also returning. Pura Vida Fishery is also returning with its sweet and buttery scallops.
Letterbox Collective, a small farm, based in Hudson, N.Y., grows quirky, heirloom vegetables and also raises pork, reasonably-priced chickens and duck that are raised without antibiotics or hormones.
Other new vendors include Happy Belly Baby which makes fruit and vegetable purees for infants.
Also new this season, Brooklyn’s Bien Cuit Bakery and All You Knead Bread will be joining us (on alternating Saturdays) ensuring that Bread Alone does not, in fact, stand alone in the bread department.
On opening day, Hudson Valley photographer and writer Francesco Mastalia will sign copies of his book, "Organic," featuring black and white portraits of the organic farmers-and-chefs who are at the epicenter of the farm to table movement in the Hudson River Valley with a preface by local-food advocate (and personal hero) Joan Dye Gussow.
