Calling all mothers! Or rather, the indebted souls who owe them their deepest gratitude. The Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow Farmers Market is holding its first-ever Mother’s Day Market Saturday, May 8.
The special market will be a massive mash-up of the TaSH’s regular food vendors, plus about a dozen craft vendors, with close to 50 vendors all told, outdoors in the Tarrytown Recreation Department parking lot. (So, plenty of parking!).
Shoppers can stock up on the freshest spring veggies – ramps, radishes, asparagus and greens – as well as local meat and cheese, eggs, baked goods and seafood to prepare a quintessentially local and seasonal Mother’s Day brunch or cookout. Plus, seasonal cocktail mixers and other brews and spirits will be for sale to liven up the day.
There will be plenty of gift items to choose from also, from fresh-cut flowers and garden seedlings to handmade jewelry, soaps and candles, award-winning artisanal chocolates, local photography and hand-thrown pottery.
Vendors represent Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow as well as the Hudson Valley within 100 miles. To see a full vendor list, click here.
TaSH organizers plan to hold a COVID-safe event, so all safety precautions will be in effect, including a requirement to wear masks in the market area and maintaining safe social-distancing.
As always, The TaSH encourages reducing waste, so shoppers are strongly encouraged to bring their reusable totes, or stop by the TaSH merchandise tent to buy a canvas or jute market bag. The TaSH is also selling T-shirts, water bottles and other TaSH items, sales of which help support the market.
