The forecast called for rain, but it turned out to be the perfect day to visit the Farmers Market at PepsiCo in Purchase.
Gramatan Village members bought the freshest produce straight from the farm, as well as, cheese and wonderful sweet treats. Part of the fun was speaking with the vendors who always have great cooking tips.
The Farmers Market at PepsiCo is co-sponsored by PepsiCo, Purchase College and FLIK. Now managed by Bronxville’s own Mary Liz Mulligan, the market has been serving the community for three years and is open Wednesdays from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. through Nov. 14.
The visit ended with a stroll through the world renowned Donald M. Kendall Sculpture Gardens. All visitors are welcome to visit the gardens which feature works by such artists as Alexander Calder, Henry Moore and Louise Nevelson among others.
The Farmers Market @ PepsiCo is located at the Greenhouse at 800 Anderson Hill Road, Purchase, NY- 10577 on the grounds of PepsiCo World Headquarters.
