An enthusiastic number of visitors, who were also celebrating Mothers’ Day, came out that day to select fresh local farm products.

And at 9:30 a.m. Town of Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton, Mayor Michael Newhard and members of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce joined officers and vendors of the Warwick Farmers Market to celebrate its official opening for the season with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Most of the 30 veteran and new vendors who signed up for the season were stationed as usual to offer a wide variety of farm-fresh produce, meats, prepared foods, jams, jellies, baked goods and pastries, flowers, plants, honey, maple syrup, wine and soaps.

Situated in the South Street Parking lot, the market showcases many of the region’s finest local farmers and producers who offer a variety of conventional, organic and certified naturally grown produce and fruits.

Mushrooms, chickens, eggs and sausages are also some of the delicacies found at the market every Sunday rain or shine.

Emily’s pizza is back with her wood fired pizzas along with new vendors Royal Acres Farm with transplants and flowering baskets, Untamed Ferments with Kvas and switzel and Peties Biscuits of New Hampton with hand-made dog biscuits.

The Warwick Valley Farmers Market is open Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 9 through Nov. 21.

During the 2021 season there is no eating or drinking allowed within the market boundary.
