Best Farmers Markets | Bedford Hills Real Estate

Many of our Westchester towns now have weekly farmers’ markets where neighbors meet and delight in superb local produce, artisanal cheeses, fresh flowers, just-caught fish, homemade baked goods, and more from vendors who drive the long distances from their farms while most of us are still in bed. Thanks to them, we get to wake up to the best the season has to offer right in our own backyards. Here’s an idea: Try one thing you’ve never had before every time you go. Not sure how to cook it? Ask the vendor for ideas—and before long, you’ll have a whole new repertoire.

1) In the full spectrum of autumn colors, beautiful ears of Indian corn from J&A Farm at the Pleasantville farmers’ market are ready to decorate front doors or brighten Thanksgiving tables.

2) Visit Alex’s Tomato Farm from Carlisle, New York, at the New Rochelle farmers’ market where Kutik’s honey sits alongside lush vegetables, flowers, fruits, and of course, tomatoes.

3) Mead Orchards of Tivoli, New York, brings pumpkins of all shapes and sizes to the busy Pleasantville market—the wooden crates and stenciled name adds a touch of days gone by.
