The special appeal of the farmers market is neatly summed up by Ethel Terry: "The farmers and the customers get to know each other’s names,” says the director of Long Island Growers Market, which sponsors about a quarter of the markets in Nassau and Suffolk. In addition to nurturing relationships, the markets allow suburbanites to buy just-picked seasonal produce at fair prices while supporting local agriculture and ecologically responsible farming methods.

 

This year, Long Island boasts 40 weekly farmers markets, seven of which (Farmingdale, Great Neck-Spinney Hill, Malverne, Hampton Bays, Mattituck, Nesconset and Riverhead waterfront) are new for 2014.
