Get your fresh fruit and veggies on Sundays
Three weeks and counting for the Patchogue Village Business Improvement District’s farmer’s market, which will make its fifth-season return on Sunday, June 9.
According to BID executive director Dennis Smith, the market will reopen with a solid dozen vendors featuring fruits and vegetables, sometimes jellies and jams, and always some sort of craft. Maybe, even some fresh pickles and bakery items.
All the produce is fresh and locally sourced from farms across Long Island. Pictured are scallion offerings from the Napolitano Family Farm in Brentwood, which promises to be there every Sunday. All their picks are grown on farm with no pesticides, manure or compost.
“We are reopening and excited about it,” said Smith. “It just gets better and better as the year goes on.”
The Farmer’s Market will run from June 9 through October on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the east end of the Patchogue Train Station. The Long Island Growers Association’s market, usually housed by a Main Street parking lot across from Rider Avenue, will now also move to the train station on Fridays.
