NRBID Grand Market
Welcome to the Grand Market! Our traditional farmers’ market food vendors sell produce as well as prepared and specialty foods, meats, breads, baked goods, cheese, pickles, roasted coffee beans, unique tea blends and crepes. Our artisan vendors also sell a wide assortment of handcrafted items: wooden bowls and cooking utensils, photography, candles, vegan soaps, jewelry, stationery, and even cute knitted hats for baby.
We consider ourselves to be “Westchester’s family-friendly market”. Every week on our grassy lawn location at 1 Library Green, you’ll find children’s entertainment and crafts coordinated in partnership with the New Rochelle Public Library, an onsite gardener ready to help little hands plant a seedling (and answer any “grown-up” gardening questions), life-sized lawn games (chess, connect four, cornhole), and a tiny toy market stand where little ones can throw on an apron and practice buying and selling their own (albeit pretend!) fruits and vegetables.
Don’t miss our live music, ranging from bluegrass to Afro-latin jazz, and our regularly-scheduled cooking demonstrations. We also roll out a library cart filled with books on sustainability, gardening, healthy eating, our food system, cookbooks and more for you to browse and learn something new on-site when you’re there. Grab lunch from one of our food trucks, plop down at a bistro table and pass part of your day with us.
The Market runs every Saturday from June through October from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine on Library Green.
There is plenty of parking in the area, including the immediate adjacent lots at Lawton Street and the lot behind the library. To get here, plug 1 Lawton St, New Rochelle, NY into your GPS.
Stay connected with up-to-the-moment information including new vendors and entertainment. Subscribe to our newsletter, ‘like’ us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram.
Good food, music and fun beckon at the Grand. We can’t wait to meet you at Library Green!
