frametemplateMarket Update

We are so sorry to have to close the market tomorrow due to inclement weather. As you know, it is our preference to stay open no matter what. But our farmers come from far afield and weather conditions are worse further up the Hudson Valley and we wouldn’t want to put their safety at risk. We know you were counting on our market being open for your holiday festivities. We are exploring the possibility of opening next week, weather permitting. Stay tuned…

Pura Vida will be at the train station tomorrow from 9am to 1pm.

In the meanwhile, Pura Vida Fishery had already filleted and cleaned the fish for markets today so he will be selling out of his truck at the train station tomorrow. PLEASE swing by and pick up some gorgeous scallops and skate wing or monkfish.

I offer you two NYT fish stew recipes by the same chef.
The first is a straightforward fish stew with traditional Mediterranean flavors and flair.
The second is more chowder-like. It’s got potatoes and black kale to give it a healthy heft.
