Market Update for 5-2-2020

 

  
      

About Us  |  Events


The farmer’s market will be held again this coming Saturday!

We will be welcoming several new vendors:

We are making a few changes to create better spacing at the market.  The market tents will be further back from the central walking area to make a bigger space in general for the impromptu lines that are necessary for proper distancing.  At times last week, there was a longer line for Fink’s Farm.  This time they will have two lines, one for pre-order pickup and one for other shoppers.  We are also moving their location somewhat so that when people are waiting in line, it is not inside the main strolling area.  

We do recommend pre-ordering if the vendor(s) of your choice accept pre-orders.

Please note that the cutoff for placing pre-orders is 4 PM Friday unless otherwise noted in the vendor list below. (Both bakeries have an earlier cutoff time.)

The hours for picking up orders will be from 9 to 12 noon only!  Your order will not held after 12 PM.

For those interested in pre-ordering see below for instructions specific for each vendor.  You must place a separate order with each vendor directly.

market 4-25

We want to extend a very special thanks for the Malverne Chamber of Commerce.  The Chamber donated a meal for our front line workers last Saturday.  All of us were touched and appreciative for the recognition.  The Farm is most grateful for our selfless staff: Nella, Susan, Rowdy, Joe, Frank, and Rich.

Holding this market (and others to be announced) aligns with our plans for limiting public events during this time of social distancing and conforms to CDC and State of New York guidelines.  The food products will be individually packaged and the folks at the tables will be wearing masks and asking customers to shop at each table one at a time.  Please be respectful of others as you visit the farm, do not come in groups, and wear a mask. If you do not come with a mask or choose not to wear one, we will not be able to admit you to the farm.

As previously reported and to bolster the safety of our staff and community, the farm is generally closed to visitors and that policy will continue until further notice. 

Please bring your own tote bag or box for the items you purchase.  A box is recommended especially for seedlings. Customers will be asked to pack their own purchases whenever possible and stay 6 feet apart. 

We appreciate your passion and support, and we hope to see you on Saturday!

With gratitude,

Rick White, NLT Chairman
Eva Schwartz, FAC Chairman

What better day than Earth Day to show support for your local, non-profit food producer than to make a donation to the Nassau Land Trust that operates Crossroads farm. Our 2020 Annual Fund is under way and we have raised over $31,000 toward our 2020 goal of $100,000.

We appreciate your passion and support, and we hope to see you on Saturday!

Happy Easter and Happy Passover!

These are tough times for all of us and finding fresh, local food items can be challenging. 

Crossroads Farm is pleased to announce that we will be teaming up with G&G Long Island Farmer’s Market to host a pop-up market at the Farm on Saturday, April 18th, from 9 to 1.  The event will include numerous local food vendors who source across Long Island and the Hudson Valley.   Crossroads will also be selling our garden-ready seedlings and local honey.  Once the list of participating merchants and producers is firmed up over the next few days, we will send an update.

Please join us for this local market event coming right up on Saturday, April 18th!  This is the first opportunity to pick up farm seedlings and will support the local market purveyors we are hosting. 

Holding this market (and others to be announced) aligns with our plans for limiting public events during this time of social distancing and conforms to CDC and State of New York guidelines.  The food products will be individually packaged and the folks at the tables will be wearing masks and asking customers to shop at each table one at a time.  Please be respectful of others as you visit the farm, do not come in groups, and consider wearing a mask.  As previously reported and to bolster the safety of our staff and community, the farm is generally closed to visitors and that policy will continue until further notice.

Meanwhile, seeding and field work are well underway!

For greenhouse work, we owe particular thanks to our amazing executive volunteer, Kathy Francos. Kathy has provided great greenhouse management and has worked tirelessly to get seeds into trays. 


Kathy Francos and Annie Sunshine

In the field, in addition to our lead farm hand Rowdy, we have Rich, Frank and Joe who are busy prepping and planting.

Frank Cozzetti

If you visit the market on Saturday, you will meet our farm operations manager, Nella Stranieri.  She was pivotal in making the pop-up market happen.  Her role for the season will be field and market management.  She comes to us from the Cornell Cooperative Extension where she worked as retail manager in their Taste of New York satellite store and trained as a Master Gardener.  We also want to welcome Susan Salem who will be working with Leonore Russell and the education team to oversee and grow our ever-expanding education program.  Susan’s background includes a stint at Restoration Farm in Old Bethpage.


Susan Salem

We thank all of our staff for their fearless dedication to the Farm and to the commuity we serve.

We appreciate your passion and support, and we hope to see you soon!
