      thanks for the information. i do know about the lynbrook market i have shopped there many times and the quality is very good to excellent-its the only weekend market in southern nassau county.it closes for the year on sunday november 19. it doesnt start till the first sunday in june. i am thinking of contacting lynbrook village hall to see if they would consider starting the market in april or may rather than june; lynbrook will have a new mayor as of april 2007 and may be receptive to that idea. the lynbrook market is at the corner of stauderman avenue and forest avenues behind the eckerd drug store. it is not easily visible from sunrise highway-supposedly the village has now put up signs.

    2. I'm curious if anyone has been to the farmers market in Huntington. Saw it listed in the link and while I'm Nassau, it actually closer (and more accessible time wise)

        The market in Huntington is in the municipal parking lot across from the old town hall( now a realtor), adjacent to the church on 25A on every sunday until Thanksgiving.

      2. What did you think of it? Are there many vendors?

        1. Terry's farm has everything for veggies, incl. heirloom stuff, fresh beans and greens. Golden Earthworm Farms is all organic with a limited selection but it's all perfect. Olive oil guy, flower lady, generic Italian food guy, and a fruit stand with semi-local stuff. Get there early for the best pick, it gets fairly crowded.

          1. Thanks, If the weather is decent, I'll give it a try this Sunday and report back.
