Farmers Market Off to a Great Start

marketsoapThis letter was sent to Scarsdale10583 by Corinna Makris, Market Manager of the Scarsdale Farners Market:

What an amazing opening day! The new Scarsdale Farmers Market opened last Thursday, September 7th and we were greeted by an enthusiastic crowd of shoppers throughout the day. We heard your comments and suggestions and we're working hard to bring you more of the best vendors in the area.

All the vendors from last week will be back, in addition to nine more weekly vendors, and we're confirming more as the season continues. This week: dog treats, bakeries, Mangalitsa Pork - the Kobe beef of pork, local honey, mozzarella and more prepared foods.

We heard that you enjoyed the live music. We're happy to say that jazz musician Alexis Cole will perform weekly through the end of the season. This week, September 14th, she'll be singing from 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

See you Thursday!

Quoting Resident:
Love the idea of a Farmers Market in Scarsdale but don't understand why Trustees would allow it to take up so many central parking spaces during prime lunch/business hours on a weekday. WIth the pre-existing parking problem magnified at Market time on Thursdays, people may very well steer clear of town rather than supporting more businesses in the 'Dale.


"Prime lunch hours"? Who thinks 3:30 - 5:30 is "prime" lunch time? Even 5:30 is early for the early birds! That's a little over-the-top, even for you "Resident".

This pilot market is a great start! I hope that residents turn up and support the farmers' market. Otherwise, this market will not survive. We have had farmers' markets before, but residents did not support them. If you do not not life the type of vendors or the time that the market is active, then please write the mayor or Trustee Jane Veron who is working on Scarsdale revitalization projects.
