April 2016 (Ossining, NY) – It’s the paradox of our time: we’re more digitally connected than ever before, yet more harried. More fragmented.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Every week at Down to Earth Farmers Markets, the region’s best farmers and food makers sell delicious foods that they have produced. Communities come together to buy directly from them. In this exchange, we connect with one another in a real way. Real food connects us all. This season, restore your connection with nature, health, and community at Down to Earth Markets.
Down to Earth Markets is excited to announce our 2016 farmers market dates. Of special note: Larchmont’s Down to Earth Farmers Market opens two weeks earlier than ever before. Also, Croton-on-Hudson’s Down to Earth Farmers Market will debut in a NEW location on Sunday, May 8th.
