Join the market
Volunteer this spring/summer
We are busy working on opening the market, but we need your help!
Our goal is to open in the safest way possible. In order to do so certain protocols, such as limiting the number of shoppers in the market at a time while practicing social distancing, will need to be in place. Adhering to these protocols will require extra help at our weekly Saturday markets - beyond our interns, market manager and board members.
The market will once again be held at the train station, in a slightly different place which will enable us to enforce our new protocols more easily.
Many of you have asked how you can help with the market in the past. Now is the time! We are looking for volunteers to help at the market on Saturdays for two-hour shifts. You will be monitoring the lines and managing the flow and safety within the market.
Thank you and see you at the market. If you have other questions feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org

Relax with some music
Music at the Market
There's nothing more relaxing than sitting at one of our bistro tables at the market, scone in hand, listening to some local music. Our musicians range from solo performers to multicultural trios.
Keep the kids happy
The kids love the activities out on the lawn during the outdoor market. An all-time favorite is Ranger Rick with his menagerie of animals--think roosters and snakes with some furry critters in between.
Recycling at the Market
We are now in our second year of the ban on plastic shopping bags. Individual plastic bags often used for veggies and meats are still allowed but due to dual stream recycling the town no longer accepts plastic bags as a recyclable item.
If you've forgotten your bag you can purchase grocery bags and veggie bags at the market table.
Other items such as egg cartons can be returned back to the vendor that you purchased the eggs from.
The town provides a garbage receptacle and a blue recycling receptacle at the market. Please throw your refuse in the appropriate bins.

Inquire about our Intern Program
Each season the Chappaqua Farmers Market offers eligible high school and college students the opportunity to apply for paid internship positions. Applicants must be outgoing self-starters. Good communication skills are a must. Speak so others (co-workers, vendors, and customers) pay attention and understand you. You are an ambassador of the market and it is vital that you greet patrons and vendors with a smile and energetic attitude.

Food for all!
Every third Saturday, the market will be collecting food for the Mt. Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry as part of our "Glean on Me" campaign. When you're buying a bunch of radishes or carrots at the market, pick up an extra bunch for the gleaning baskets at the market tent. The contents of the baskets will be delivered to local families who don't have access to fresh, local ingredients. Every little bit helps!
One person's trash...
Take it or Leave it
Although they are not part of the market we love sharing the train station with this town program. Something to get rid of ? Just leave it at the take it or leave it shed during operating hours...or take something that catches your eye. No money exchanges hands. The shed is open on Saturday mornings during our outdoor season. For more info click here.
