For the most updated information about farmers markets in the area, see LIW‘s 2017 listing:
Ditch the grocery store for produce this year and try a local farmers market or community supported agriculture (CSA) which is becoming increasingly popular on Long Island. Find fresh produce, dairy, breads and even meat, along with a number of other products from local and regional vendors.
By shopping local markets you are not only supporting local businesses, but also you are buying healthy products.
