The market is closed for the season, but we are busy preparing for our return in the spring.

The mission of the Chappaqua Farmers Market is to bring food that is locally grown, raised or produced to our community. Additionally we want to raise awareness of the importance of eating local for the sustainability of our planet. Visit our Westchester County market every Saturday at the Chappaqua Train Station.

    Treadling lightly at Treadlight Farm

     

     

    Meet Matt and Irene.

    They own Treadlight Farm, a flower and vegetable farm in Bovina, NY.
    This summer, they will be bringing us specialty cut flowers and ornamental plants which they grow on south facing slopes in the western Catskill mountains.

    Their selection is curated with great care “by us and by nature,” says Irene. “We grow what we think is beautiful, or delicious, and nature whittles that down to what grows well in our cool seasons and rocky soil.”
    Born in New Jersey, Irene has a background in landscape conservation. Armed with an MS from the University of Pennsylvania, she set out to conserve farmland in the most direct way possible: by working on it. She believes that the more people rely on the land, the better stewards of it they become.
    Matt is from California and studied sustainable development at NYU. He got the farming bug while a Fulbright scholar in Mali and Senegal, researching farmers who resisted the loss of their lands to industrial-sized operations.

    The two met and converged on a vegetable farm in Argentina in 2011, and have been farming side-by-side ever since. They are committed  to small-scale, ecologically-minded agriculture “because we have seen the kinds of impacts large-scale farming can have on people and on the environment.”
