The Pawling Farmers Market opens Saturday, June 18 for the season, with extended hours, more vendors, and more special programs delivering the finest fresh produce, specialty foods, and wines the Hudson Valley has to offer. The market, now in its 9th season, will be open Saturdays through October 1st, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., staying open an extra hour and an extra two weeks in response to visitor requests for more time to shop at the market situated on Pawling’s Village Green.
Vendors this year will offer orchard produce, fresh baked goods, local cheese, maple syrup products, poultry, and more. The market has also doubled its artisan program with hand-made cutting boards and photography.
A petting zoo from ‘Two by Two’ will help launch the season June 18, with a free-of-charge (donations appreciated) traveling zoo for Farmers Market visitors. The zoo will feature a kangaroo, goats, tortoise and pot-bellied pig.
Each Saturday, musicians offer live performances. Event times will be posted on the Market website at www.pawlingfarmersmarket.org.
The Pawling Farmers Market is located immediately off Route 22 in the picturesque Village of Pawling on the renovated Village Green, surrounded by shops and restaurants, including The Book Cove and McKinney & Doyle Fine Foods, among others. Plenty of free parking is available, and Metro North’s Harlem Line stops right in Pawling, less than a block from the market.
The Pawling Farmers Market continues the Hudson Valley’s long agricultural heritage, offering locally grown and produced fruits, vegetables, and other foods that support local growers and bring healthy food choices to visitors.
