Reminder: Join us this and EVERY Saturday through October 26th for our Community Farmer's Market
Ribbon Cutting and Hempstead Family Fun Day!
The Hempstead Community Farmer's Market will be offering residents and visitors a cornucopia of colorful fresh fruits and vegetables grown at Long Island farms!
The Farmer's Market operates every Saturday from 11am to 3pm, through October 26, at 99 James Garner Way (the Village Hall parking lot.). The Market will be operational during those times while supplies last.
The Incorporated Village of Hempstead has partnered with Choice For All, a non-profit that works to support youth, family and community development by offering supportive services. Choice For All CEO Jacob Dixon says his organization will set up several large stands and some booths filled with 30 to 40 different types of fresh fruits and vegetables, including corn, cabbage, celery, apples, peaches and pears. Customers can pay with cash, credit, SNAP cards or Farmers Nutrition Checks, which can only be spent at Farmer's Markets. Produce will not be the only attraction. Choice For All will also have games for children.
Each Farmer's Market promises to be a wonderful event. In the weeks ahead The Hempstead Chamber of Commerce will be featuring various merchants throughout the village at the Farmer's Market. We are expecting a large turnout out each Saturday, so visitors are asked to arrive early. The Hempstead Community Farmers Market is brought to you by the Village of Hempstead, Choice for All, HCSN Roosevelt, Nassau County, Hempstead Community Development Agency and Northwell Health.
