New vendors joining us the season include Charlotte’s Home Kitchen, Hudson Valley Fisheries, The Cookie Crumbles Bakeshop, Lather Rise Repeat, A Tart’s Tart, Freshly Made, Clarkson Avenue Crumb Cake Company, There’s No Place Like Om, and For the Love of Toffee. The weekly vendor list includes familiar weekly TaSH vendors selling vegetables, fruit, meats, seafood, cheese, bread, eggs, pickles, coffee, cider, spirits and pantry staples. There will be plenty of prepared food items for picnics and Memorial Day barbeques including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Other items to look out for this season: bento boxes from MOMO Dressing; vegan and vegetarian sandwiches and salads from Judy’s Kitchen; even more produce variety thanks to the addition of Berry Brook Farm; as well as the return of Teagevity and Wildcraft Baking Company (formerly known as Sweethearth Bakery).

 

 While NY State has lifted its mask mandate for many areas, our market is a crowded place and it’s not always easy to socially distance. For now, we kindly ask all Customers should look for signs directing where to line up for individual vendor booths. Masks can be removed when seated away from market traffic in designated picnic areas.

 

Kids activities are back with safe and socially distant protocols in place. We’re excited to kick off the season with a fun, educational Pollinator Pathway Scavenger Hunt on Opening Day. Stop by The TaSH info booth to pick up materials and learn about the important role bees play in our food system – and collect a prize! Additional free activities returning this season include Marta C.’s Book Nook, walking story time with Warner Library and kids yoga.

The TaSH not only accepts SNAP/EBT benefits – it doubles their value! Customers who swipe their EBT card for $20 get $40 to spend at the market. We also accept WIC checks.

The TaSH is grateful for the continued support of its individual and community funders and sponsors — including Presenting Sponsors: Phelps Hospital Northwell Health — a founding and longest-running sponsor — as well as The Fit Inn, a small group fitness & personal training studio in Tarrytown. Additional sponsors this season include Renewal by Andersen (Supporting Sponsor), Rey Insurance (Market Champion Sponsor), and Allan M. Block Insurance Agency and SunBlue Energy (Friends of the Market Sponsors).

This season we are also delighted to welcome back the sale of TaSH-branded merchandise including NEW limited edition kids T-shirts, adult T-shirts, The TaSH signature tote bag, produce bags, water bottles and more.
