On a recent trip to the Pleasantville Farmers Market, I got weepy thinking about how this was one of my last weekends shopping outdoors for local camembert and fresh pasta, fresh-picked greens and just-harvested sweet potatoes. Then I remembered: There are a number of farmers markets that move inside as the weather turns cooler.
We also have a little more time to enjoy our outdoor markets. Saturday farm markets in Larchmont and Pleasantville are in full swing until December 15, and the Sunday Rye Farmers Market will remain open through December 16.
In January, several towns will host monthly farmers markets until outdoor markets reopen in May, and I’ll post those dates as I get them. Still, here are a few great markets that you can count on through the winter. (BTW, check out these really adorable DIY market bags from Design*Sponge to tote your winter veggies home with you!)
Chappaqua Farmers Market
This well-established market is typically outside St. Mary’s Church in the village of Chappaqua on Saturdays. On December 1, the market will move inside the church. Expect the same vendors: Big Girl Baking, Fork and Glass, and Kontoullis Olive Oil, among others. Saturdays, 8:30am to 1:30pm. 191 South Greeley Avenue, Chappaqua
Stone Barns Winter Farmers Market
Head to Stone Barns for a lovely winter walk, then stop at the Farm Market. Beginning on Sunday, December 16, the Winter Farm Market will be held once a month inside the Hay Barn. Mark your calendars: Market days are December 16, January 13, February 10, March 10, and April 14 from 1 to 4pm. Follow Stone Barns on Facebook and Twitter to see what’s available at the market each week. 630 Bedford Road, Pocantico Hills, 914-366-6200
Hastings Farmers Market
The Hastings Farmers Market will move their well-curated selection inside for two Saturdays a month — the second and fourth Saturday — this winter. In December, the market will remain outdoors from 9am to 1pm at the Hastings Library Lot (7 Maple Avenue); From January to March, it will be at the James Harmon Community Center (44 Main Street) from 9am to 1pm.
Mount Kisco Winter Farmers Market
Held inside St. Mary’s Church in downtown Mount Kisco, this market will remain open and inside every Saturday from 9am to 1pm through the duration of the winter. It’s a smallish market but still worth a trip. (Plus, it gives you an excuse to stop by the Laissi Bar!) Vendors include some of my favorites, like Flour City Pasta (yum!), John Boy’s Farm, and Madura Farms. St. Mark’s Church, 85 East Main Street, Mount Kisco; 914-666-8069
