Winter Market Opening Day Jan. 10 at Field Library
The City of Peekskill announced that beginning Jan. 10, the Peekskill Farmers’ Market, sponsored by the Peekskill Business Improvement District (BID), will have an expanded winter season. “The summer and winter farmers markets are important Peekskill family events,” said Jason Angell, executive director of the BID.
Peekskill Mayor Frank Catalina said, “There has been a great deal of enthusiasm for the market to become a year-round Saturday event. Thanks to the efforts of Corinna Makris, program director, the Peekskill Farmers’ Market tripled in size this year, in both the number of vendors and shoppers. We’re very happy we found an indoor space that works.”
Hot chocolate and cookies will be provided by Kathleen’s Tea Room on Winter Market Opening Day Saturday, Jan. 10.
Vendors will include Eight Mile Creek Farm, Cooperstown Cheese, Edenesque, Arch River meats, along with some new specialty grocery items. Expect rotating artisan and handcraft vendors such as local clothing designer Jeorjia Shea. A complete list of vendors will be updated on the market website PeekskillFarmersMarket.com.
The Peekskill Farmers’ Market winter season will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday from Jan. 10 through April 25, on the main floor at the Field Library, 4 Nelson Ave., Peekskill, near the corner of Main Street (Route 6).
