Clarkstown has launched what it hopes is a new tradition: a Farmers Market on the grounds of the historic Traphagen property located at 131 Germonds Rd., West Nyack.
Supervisor George Hoehmann said, “This Farmers Market will not only highlight local and regional vendors, but solidify Clarkstown’s leadership in the the county as the number one place to do business. The market will give our residents access to agricultural products and return this unique and historic property to its roots as a farm. I can’t think of a better place to spend a Saturday morning.”
“I think it’s wonderful that Clarkstown will finally have its very own Farmer’s Market,” said Clarkstown Superintendent of Recreation and Parks Elaine Apfelbaum. “I am very excited to help launch this and many other new programs being offered by the Clarkstown Recreation & Parks Department.”
The market will is open Saturdays from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. from June 17 – October 28.
The Traphagen property includes the 1791 Vanderbilt-Budke House and the 1820 TraphagenHouse, and was recently added to the New York State Register of Historic Places. For more information about Clarkstown’s Farmers Market residents can call the Recreation office at 845-639-6200.
