Although winter has been overly kind this season, the weekend farmer’s market in Great Neck has moved inside the Great Neck House through the end of March in order help vendors continue to bring the goods to market. Shoppers are showing their appreciation for this sheltered event by continuing to frequent the market, week after week.
The venue may be small, but there is no shortage of neat treats and cool finds such as doggie bandanas, kitty bowties, essential oils, farm-fresh vegetables, intriguing horseradish blends, barbecue sauces and rubs, baked goods, gourmet pickles and cheeses, specialty coffees and local honey.
Some of the recent vendors include:
- Brian’s House of Spices
- All Baked Up of Sayville
- The Illegal Baker of Huntington
- Zippy Pets
- Qua Zay Culinary Services
- Italian Wife Bakes of Brooklyn
- The Cheese Guy of Yonkers
- Koltuk’s Honey, LLC
- Dobler Farms of Deer Park
- Horman’s Best Pickles of Glen Cove
- Diesel Cold Brew of Brooklyn
- Johnny Breads
- Sauce Up NYC
- Brooklyn Essence, LLC
It is seemingly so popular with vendors also, many on a bi-weekly rotation, in order to accommodate all of the selling space requests. If you find something you love, check with the vendor to find out their next scheduled market date, to coordinate your follow-up shopping adventure.
The indoor winter market, a collaborative event between Great Neck Park District and Deep Roots Farmers Market, runs Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through March 26 at Great Neck House (14 Arrandale Ave., Great Neck).
