The farmers in Croton-on-Hudson are bringing in more unique melons varieties as the weeks progress, so we’re going to host another melon tasting. Stop by this Sunday to try these delicious fruits, freshly-picked from the late summer harvest.

Ossining: Together Let’s Eliminate Plastic Shopping Bags

Down to Earth Markets estimates that at least 64,000 plastic shopping bags leave the Ossining market/year. Plastic bags often end up as litter in our streets, green spaces, and waterways.
With this in mind, we encourage shoppers to Bring Your Own Bag a.k.a. BYOBag to the market.
As of Saturday, September 27th, vendors at the Ossining market will charge $0.10 for every
point-of-sale shopping bag with the expectation to eliminate them with time.

On September 20th and 27th, everyone is invited to donate your extra reusable bags to the Ossining market manager. The manager will offer these bags to shoppers for use instead of plastic. For every bag donated, the giver can enter a raffle for a $25 gift certificate to the Ossining Farmers Market.

Also, Green Ossining plans to host a “T-Shirt to Tote” workshop at the market, teaching all how to transform old t-shirts to reusable bags. Please visit our event calendar for full details.

Piermont – Registration ends soon for Apple Pie Contest on Sunday, Sept. 28

This is the last Sunday to register at the farmers market for the 2nd Annual Piermont Apple Pie Contest. The judges will be renowned Chef Peter X. Kelly, Mark Tasker, Head Pastry Chef of Balthazar, and esteemed Piermont community member, Sylvia Welch.
They will determine the winner in the categories of Best Tasting, Best Looking, Most Creative, and Most Traditional. Then they’ll turn the judging over to the public to taste each entry and vote on Best Overall. In a phrase, “Bring it.” Register this Sunday at the market or online HERE.


The Westchester Triathlon takes place on Sunday and it will be in Rye around the time of the farmers market opening (8:30 am). The market will be open per usual, but please note that area traffic may be rerouted for a short while. Join us in cheering on these inspiring athletes and then stock up on fresh, local foods at the market. See you there.

Vendor News: Wave Hill Bread Named Best Bread (Again!)

For the second year in a row, Connecticut Magazine has declared something that Down to Earth Farmers Market customers have known all along: Wave Hill Bread is the BEST BREAD around. Congratulations to Mitch, Margaret, and their talented crew! We’re so happy to have them at our markets in Larchmont on Saturdays and Croton-on-Hudson on Sundays.
