Fall Farmers’ Markets on Long Island

Even as temperatures on Long Island begin to drop, many farmers' markets remain open and active.

A relatively mild summer will soon be drawing to a close, but the weather growing a bit colder does not mean you have to leave behind all the fun and flavors of the season. When spring rolls around every year farmers’ markets begin to pop up all around the Island, selling a variety of locally sourced fruits, vegetables, baked goods and other delicious treats.

Buying from a farmers’ market allows locals to procure the freshest produce while helping to support Long Island’s farmers and small businesses. For some towns the markets only stay open through the warmer months; however, other markets stay open for late summer and even until the middle of fall. If you’re not ready to leave behind all of that tasty, locally grown food then check out these markets that will still be open in the coming months.
