  • The Gawronski family of Goshen — mom Anita with Gabriela, 5, and Olivia, 3 — are happy to be at the farmers market talking with “Pixie Pop” the clown and getting handmade animal balloons to bring home.




  • Maureen Quattrini, market chair for the Goshen Chamber of Commerce, takes a time-out to talk with her granddaughter Samara Quattrini as she happily munches on a pickle. Samara’s mom, Cassie, is a great patron of the market. The family lives in Goshen.




  • Emma Neuhaus, four-year old daughter of County Executive Steve Neuhaus and Rachel Neuhaus, had the honor of cutting the “green ribbon” to mark the opening of the market. With her are town and state officials and members of the chamber of commerce, which sponsors the market. To the far right is Emma’s dad with her younger sister, Charlotte.




  • Farmer Kasha Bialas, of Bialas Farms in Goshen, gets a helping hand from her smiling three-year old cousin, Olivia, in listing the fresh produce available.




  • Three-year old David of Goshen isn’t interested in the market, but he sure enjoys the cool water flowing from the Harriman Fountain. The fountain was dry for decades before Goshen Restoration restored the fountain last year.



— Once again, fresh healthy food has come to our doorsteps. On Friday, May 30, local farmers and other vendors of homemade delights marked the first day of the Goshen Farmers Market, setting up their tents in Church Park for the first time after the long winter.

Judging by the size of the crowd attending opening day, it’s clear people were eagerly anticipating the arrival of the market's offerings: fresh produce, homemade soaps, traditional and gluten-free bakery items, jams and jellies, meats, pottery, local wine and plenty more.

According to market manager Diana Lupinski, 30 vendors are selling homegrown and homemade items this year.

The market is located at the corner of Main Street and South Church Street in the heart of the Village. With the exception of Friday, July 4, the market will be open every Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., until Oct. 31.
