09:00 am - 01:00 pm

May 8, 2012 (Sag Harbor, NY) – The Farmers’ Market will open to the public on May 19th from 9am until 1pm and will continue to operate every Saturday through October 2012. We will have an Opening Day Vine Cutting Ceremony to give appreciation to the Village of Sag Harbor and the Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce for their support in making our market a huge success throughout the years.
Customers will find some new vendors this year and the complete list can be found online via facebook.com/sagharborfarmersmarket or at www.sagharborfarmersmarket.org.
We are beginning the early produce season with a variety of nutrient rich, locally harvested vegetables such as asparagus, mushrooms, oregano, kale, beets, carrots, arugula, chard, garlic scapes, scallions, and more. Customers can also expect other delectable homemade and locally grown foods such as ice cream, empanadas, breads, baked goods, preserves, wine, raw honey, grass-fed beef, artisanal cheese, yogurt, butter, cow’s milk (vat pasteurized), local fish and farm fresh eggs.
Some of the vendors of the farmers’ market are WIC (a federally-funded health and nutrition program for women, infants, and children) certified. The market accepts a virtual food stamps or Electronic Transfer Benefits (EBT), a system supported by the USDA that utilizes a processing machine to swipe credit/debit cards.
The purpose of the market is to preserve the local economy by supporting our community farmers and artisans in the East End.
You can find us on Bay St. (at Burke St. in front of the Break Water Yacht Club) in Sag Harbor, NY 11963. Questions/comments can be sent to the managers via email or by phone.
