“I’m proud to provide a venue for residents to combine forces and sell their excess belongings, promote a business or raise awareness about work they do in the community,” Legislator Abrahams said. “I have truly enjoyed watching this event evolve and grow during the last five years and thank everyone who helped to make this year’s Fall Outdoor Community Market a success once again.”
 
Town of Hempstead Supervisor Laura Gillen was among the visitors who attended the open-air market. Members of Uniondale High School’s Junior ROTC assisted vendors and organizers with their setup needs; later, the Nassau County PD Explorers youth program provided additional support to participants. At the end of the day, the St. Vincent de Paul Society offered vendors an opportunity to donate unsold merchandise.
