It started out as an idea shared by Stony Point residents Michele Corish, Jennifer Lima and Jeanna Cook on the North Rockland Community Group on Facebook. And in less than two months it blossomed into Stony Point’s first farmers market.
The Town of Stony Point hosted the event on the lawn at town hall on Saturday, October 6. The North Rockland Business Alliance sponsored the event, which attracted over a dozen or so vendors, including a bounce castle for kids.
The market lacked the trademark fresh farm produce because produce vendors need several months notice to make their schedule. No worries, the event was as much a test run for next year, as it was a nice early autumn treat for Stony Pointers.
Come next year, residents can expect a full-fledged farmers’ market, organizers said.
Remarking on the interesting way the market got its start Supervisor Geoff Finn said, “I guess Facebook works,” as Michele, Jennifer and Jeanna officially cut the ribbon on the town’s first farmers market
