Grand Market Cares:
Help Keep Our Neighbors Warm
New Rochelle’s Grand Market is supporting the Larchmont Newcomers’ Club’s annual Off the Hook fall coat drive, which collects coats for the New Rochelle Boys & Girls Club, New Rochelle CAP, Hope Community Services and the Mamaroneck Child Development Center.
We will host a coat collection box at the Market Manager’s table every Saturday through the end of October.
Those who bring a warm winter coat (or two!) to the Grand Market’s box are eligible to enter their name into raffle for a gift basket of Grand Market goodies. Each coat equals another opportunity to enter the raffle. Warm men’s coats sized XXL are especially needed.

NRPL Children’s Garden!
Located off of Lawton Street behind the library (we usually try to mark the way with signage and chalk arrows on the sidewalk), this shady oasis provides children an opportunity to plant a seedling, pick a radish or taste a fresh-off-the-vine sweet pea, under the friendly guidance of a dedicated children’s gardening specialist Jeanne-Marie Healy. A special project of the New Rochelle Public Library, the Children’s Garden is open weekly from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
New Rochelle’s Grand Market is growing. We are looking to increase our fresh food, beverage, ready-to-eat and small-batch products. Some items we are particularly looking for:
-Savory pies, large quiches, empanadas and more (things people can buy at the market and pop in the oven for dinner that evening)
-Unique candies and chocolates (eg. goats milk chocolate, etc.)
-Curries and other interesting sauces
-on-site coffee, tea and fresh-pressed juices
-gourmet pet treats
-“Ready to eat offerings” that people can enjoy on-site (fresh sandwiches/salads, fruit cups, etc.)
-Anything else that is handmade, delicious, interesting and will add to the ambiance. Tell us about it!
The Grand Market is under new management and this is a great opportunity to join a small, but vibrant market positioned for growth in the coming years. Our fees are competitive and our accessible market staff is committed to supporting our independent NY-State vendors and farmers. Vendors must have proper knowledge of food-safety/preparation techniques, show appropriate certifications related to the product being sold, a customer-service mindset, an ability to tastefully merchandise their product and demonstrate professionalism in terms of attendance and communication (including during the application phase). Please contact email@example.com to discuss your interest and request an application. Serious inquiries only, please.
