SI farmers markets this fall: When are they open and closed for the season?

Staten Island, New York – Crisp weather and great weather call for an outdoor shopping trip. Here are four municipal markets with locally harvested fruits and vegetables.

“Fall leads not only to changes in garden produce, but lower temperatures and falling grasses contribute to changes in the milk produced on our farm, and changes in richness and quality, so we will begin making Camembert cream cheeses again in mid-October.”

In the following list, note closings and changes in hours for this last part of the growing season.
