NEW: Chappaqua Farmers Market – Packed to the Gills

If you think scheduling your family vacation is tough, just imagine what it’s like juggling the schedules of a hundred different vendors between five farmer’s markets. Of course, you have your weekly vendors, your tried and true favorites who provide the market staples like bread, coffee, cheese, produce, fish and, yes, flowers and pie – two weekly musts in my book.

Then you have your rotating vendors. They’re the ones who add the “spice” to the market, as it were, the more unusual items that you wouldn’t necessarily buy every week. There are weeks when, as the schedule falls, we have more than most. This is one of those weeks. You DO NOT want to miss the market this week.

Bring a blanket or a chair and have a picnic dinner while watching the play.

Lawn Chair Theater is a summer theater program that has brought outdoor performances to the parks of Westchester since 2005. They have had great fun producing plays of Shakespeare during summertime. Their casts are multi-generational, blending both professional and amateur performers.
