The Down to Earth Farmers Market Chelsea: Saturdays, 9am-2pm on the North side of West 23rd St., off Ninth Ave. | New York area growers and artisan food makers return to Chelsea every Saturday through Dec. 17. This Market was created with the support of nearby Church of the Holy Apostles, with the mission of bringing wholesome and delicious foods to the neighborhood’s shoppers and supporting local small farms and food businesses. “The Chelsea Farmers Market is a grower-producer market,” its fouders note, “meaning that vendors must be farmers or make food with ingredients purchased from local farms. The few exceptions to this rule are olive oil, chocolate and coffee vendors who can document their sourcing.” The Market’s ninth season will offer fruits, vegetables, and meats from area farms. Market favorites PickleLicious and Orwashers Bakery are returning, along with fresh faces including Love the Soup! from Morristown, NJ and Ideal Fish from Waterbury, CT. SNAP EBT is welcome (visit the manager’s tent to get tokens; matching Health Bucks are available). Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks, issued by WIC offices and Seniors’ centers, can be used from June through November. Get the latest Market news by signing up for their email newsletter via the Down to Earth Markets website (click here to access it) or by following the Chelsea Farmers Market on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/dtechelseafarmersmarket/).
