The Leatherman’s Loop has always been a friend to the local farmers and farmers markets. In the past some of our proceeds have been donated to local farms groups and co-ops in order to supply fresh food to local food pantries and soup kitchens. We encourage you to support your local farmers markets. Many sell more than produce—items for sale sometimes include baked goods, honey, jarred goods, and barbecue served hot.
LocalHarvest.org has a zip code search tool that lets you find local farmers markets. http://www.localharvest.org/
From their home page: “The best organic food is what’s grown closest to you. Use our website to find farmers’ markets, family farms, and other sources of sustainably grown food in your area, where you can buy produce, grass-fed meats, and many other goodies.”
Around the Pound Ridge Reservation region there are several farmers markets that operate though the summer (and even the winter):
– John Jay High School. Weekly on saturdays from May – October. (http://www.localharvest.org/farmers-markets/M17196)
– Gossett Brothers Nursery on Route 35 in South Salem – Saturdays throughout the year (winter too – indoors!)
– Muscoot Farm – Saturdays from May – October. Visit the Muscoot Farm county park while you buy local produce.
– Ridgefield, CT – also Saturdays during the late spring – early fall.
Let us know your local farmers markets. Some have special events so post them here so others can keep up.
