Mrs. Green’s Natural Markets has made a new $5,000 donation with the Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow Farmers Market. The new partnership marks a first-of-its-kind collaboration between the organic chain and the community surrounding its Tarrytown location.
“At Mrs. Green’s, we are constantly looking for ways to serve our communities, and the local farmers market is a perfect opportunity to do just that. Not only does it introduce families to great tasting, locally-sourced food, but nurtures a greater sense of community,” said Pat Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Natural Markets Food Group, the parent company of Mrs. Green’s. “We are thrilled to sponsor this amazing event and look forward to deepening our partnership with the Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow community.”
Organized by Rivertowns Village Green, Inc., the weekly market features an impressive array of local vendors offering quality foods and products, as well as entertainment and activities for children of all ages. The market aims to improve access to quality locally produced foods, stimulate community conversation about sustainability and provide the local community with a safe, fun place for families to explore.
David Kiser, Mrs. Green’s in-house chef, will be on site on opening day – Saturday, May 23, 2015 at 8:30 a.m. in Patriots Park, Tarrytown – for a cooking demonstration using some of the store’s most popular products. The market will run every Saturday throughout the summer.
“We are delighted with the range of vendors we have attracted,” said Tammy Abraham, Co-President of the Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollows Farmers Market. “The market will host local growers of produce and organic meat, fishermen who pull their catch from Long Island Sound and cheesemakers crafting their artisan wheels from animals pastured in the fertile Hudson Valley. We will have breads baked from locally milled grain, pizza grilled in a mobile wood-fired oven, an international array of prepared foods and many more amazing vendors who will help make the market a local and regional destination.”
