When the puck drops on Oct. 4, local burgers will be served at the Nassau Coliseum for Islander games.

Main Street Wholesale Meats, a division of the popular Farmingdale Meat Market, will be supplying the Coliseum with its hamburgers. The market has created an exclusive blend, made with brisket, short rib and chuck, for sale at all home games of the Islanders. They also will be sold during other events at the Coliseum.

Farmingdale Meat Market has been in business since 1946, founded by Julius Seelig. His grandson Lee Seelig said the new burger reflects the "heart-pounding, goal-scoring, hard-hitting action" of Islanders' hockey.

Farmingdale Meat Market, 210 Main St., Farmingdale; 516-249-8200.
