Winter Farmers Market - Westhampton Beach

I haven't been out to Long Island since Thanksgiving. It's 25 degrees outside tonight and the only spot of warmth is learning that the Westhampton Beach Chamber of Commerce started a "pilot" Winter Farmers Market in Westhampton "due to the overwhelming success of the 2009 (summer) Farmers Market".

Local retailers are hosting the indoor (and warm) market every Saturday.

AWESOME NEWS!


Here are the details from the Chamber's Website:


WINTER Farmer's Market - Indoor Pilot Program Westhampton Beach
