Farmers Market at Phelps Returns
(May 22, 2014) The Farmers Market at Phelps will open for the season on Thursday, June 12, from 11am to 3pm, and continue weekly through the end of October in the northeast parking lot directly across from the 755 building on the hospital campus. Sponsored by Phelps Memorial Hospital Center, this source for fresh local produce, artisanal farm products and healthful prepared foods welcomes shoppers from nearby communities.
The farmers market is part of Phelps’ Vitality initiative, which focuses on encouraging wellness in the community. “We are all about promoting good health,” says Phelps Senior Vice President Daniel Blum, “and good health starts with good food. The market was so popular last year, we wanted to continue to offer our community convenient mid-week access to farm-fresh produce and other healthy foods.”
The market will be organized and managed again by Pascale Le Draoulec of Hastings, a food writer and author who runs farmers markets in Chappaqua, Hastings and Irvington.
Shoppers will find a wide range of farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, farm products including cheeses, eggs and meats, as well as prepared foods such as baked goods, sandwiches and salads. Some of last year’s popular vendors will return, including True Food, offering heart-healthy burritos and salads such as garlicky chickpea and kale, and Betsy Rich with her delicious Champagne and Guinness-flavored brownies. Wright’s Apple Farm from New Paltz will be offering homemade jams, fruit pies and pickles, while all kinds of artisanal breads will be featured by Wave Hill Breads. Other vendors will include D & J Produce, Mrs. D’s Mediterranean Delights , Joe Tomato Fresh Mozzarella and Caprese sandwiches, Taiim Falafel Shack and falafel cart and Madura Farms.
Bi-weekly vendors will include Samosa Shack, Sohha Yogurt and Doc Pickle, while every month Clean Ridge Soap, Honey Locust Farmhouse and Penny Lick ice cream will be featured.
The Farmers Market at Phelps will be open every Thursday from 11am to 3pm until the end of October. Convenient free parking is available. More information may be obtained by calling 914-366-3937.
