Farmers Markets List by Slow Food East End

ALL UPDATED FOR 2016
There are now 15 farmers markets on the East End. When I started writing about our farmers and wineries in 2003, there were zero. None. And the received wisdom was that it would never happen.

Farmers were doing well enough selling from their own farm stands, thank you very much, and proposing they pack up a bunch of stuff at o’dark hundred and drive to sell vegetables was, well, that was just beyond.

Thanks to Slow Food for 2016’s list. Here they are by day of operation

Reasons it’s changed? The younger generation of farmers and the new farmers wanted to get the word out. Holly Browder, who started her pastured chicken farm with her husband, Chris, in 2010, is being joined by new artisan food makers and brewers at the markets. The farm-to-table movement, which has much benefitted the Long Island wine industry, has increased demand. People love to meet their farmers. One-stop shopping. The farmers market that opened over the winter in Riverhead drew crowds. Many families have turned Saturday morning shopping into an outing. Slow Food East End started in 2003, and immediately drew like-minded eaters, who wanted to promote slowing down while eating. And, hey, we’d like to think Edible may have had a part. The magazine started in 2005. Once our readers started learning about their food makers, it was more than a bundle of asparagus, it was an investment in the land, the community and themselves. Thanks everyone! Now there’s home gardens and school gardens and 15 farmers markets.

Thanks you Slow Food for 2016’s list. Here they are by day of operation
