The new Seaford Farmers' Market that debuted in early June with initial plans to run until the end of November, closed early due to Superstorm Sandy and is looking ahead to next year.
Seaford resident Donna Jebaily, who helped bring the market to her home community, said organizers from the Long Island Growers Market decided to shut down for the year on Nov. 3 and will be re-opening in May. The market was held each Saturday morning next to the Seaford Long Island Rail Road Station and featured a variety of food vendors.
Jebaily described the first year of the Seaford Farmers’ Market as a success and is looking forward to bigger success in 2013.
“So many people were so happy to have what they would normally have to drive out east for right in their own neighborhood,” Jebaily said. “Our hopes for next year is to have more vendors available and more of the local residents know about it.”
Ethel Terry from the Long Island Growers Market said she appreciates the support of the Seaford community and that they are “looking forward to retuning in the spring.”
