WHAT: Nassau County Legislators Kevan M. Abrahams (D - Freeport) and Debra Mulé (D - Freeport) are partnering with the Freeport-based Cedarmore Corporation to host their annual seasonal Farmers’ Market at the Baldwin LIRR station. The market is scheduled to operate from 11:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays (weather permitting) for the duration of the season.
Local youth are hired each year to operate the market, which features an array of local produce and specialties including corn, greens, lettuce, tomatoes and organic honey. Most produce is picked fresh that morning from farms on Long Island’s east end.
This year’s market is presented in partnership with the New York State FreshConnect Program; Sanitary District No. 2; Nassau County’s Department of Human Services, Office of Youth Services; and the HempsteadWorks Career Center, with special thanks to Town of Hempstead Senior Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby and Town of Hempstead Councilman Christopher Carini for their support.
