It started a little late in the season, but a new farmers market has launched in the Spinney Hill section of Great Neck. The Sunday market is sponsored by North Shore-LIJ Health System and, in addition to produce (from Stan-Pat Farm in East Moriches and Perez Farm in upstate Goshen), the hospital will be hosting short talks on such health-related topics as container gardening, healthy eating on a budget, composting and exercise. There will be live cooking demos and recipe handouts. There’s more information on the Spinney Hill Farmers Market Facebook page.
The market runs on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. through Oct. 26 at 125 Community Dr., in front of LIJ office buildings, 516-543-6033, ligreenmarket.org
