The Nyack Farmer's Market doesn't end just because the weather turns cold. It moves inside.

The Nyack Center and the Nyack Chamber of Commerce work together as the second annual Nyack Winter Farmer's Market opens 8 a.m. Thursday in the Nyack Center.

The Nayck Winter Farmer's Market is open every Thursday (except Dec. 26) through March 27, 2014 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the outdoor market returning April 3.

"We're excited to continue to offer this valuable resource to the Nyack Community," said Nyack Center Executive Director Kim Cross. "The Winter Market is a focal point for families who value healthy lifestyles, and a bright spot during the cold winter months."

Cross will join Nyack Mayor Jen Laird-White, Chamber of Commerce President Scott Baird, Farmer's Market co-directors Carlo Pellegrini and David Collins and manager Pam Moskowkitz for a ribbon-cutting at 8 a.m. Jazz and blues musician Sam Waymon will provide live entertainment from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Green Mountain Energy, Rivertown Magazine and Massage Theraputics sponsor the Winter Market.

Many of the vendors from the outdoor market make the move indoors, including Central Bakery, DOC Pickles, Gajeski Produce, Hummingbird Ranch, Kiernan Farm, Meredith's Bread/Horn of Plenty, Mostly Myrtle's, Northern Farmhouse Pasta, Orchards of Concklin, Pegs' Eggs/Hillery Farm, Pie Lady & Son, Rooneybrook Farm, Talim Falafel Shack, Teagevity and X-calibur Knife and Scissors Sharpening. The Rockland Farm Alliance and Pike's Farm Table will be there as new vendors. 


Billy Batson will serve as an artist-in residence at the Winter Market. As a new addition, there will also be weekly classes offered, including early childhood music instruction by Jeffrey Friedberg, art by the Nyack Art Collective and cooking by local chefs. 

"We're building a new tradition in Nyack with the Winter Market, and we expect it will enjoy a long and fruitful life in the heart of our special village," Baird said. "We also expect to see the same kind of crowd -- lots of Nyack natives, but also friends and neighbors from far and wide who love good food, fresh local products and the special home-made delicacies you can't find in any supermarket."
