The indoor Riverhead Farmers Market, one of the few weekly East End markets open through winter, will be open an extra day per week starting Nov. 16. 

Market hours will extend from Saturdays at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m to include Sundays from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., according to Ray Pickersgill, president of the Riverhead Business Improvement District Management Association, which sponsors the market.

“We have 100 vendors on a waiting list and we wanted to give others a chance,” he said. “It will be a totally different group on Sundays.”

Pickersgill said the Sunday lineup has not yet been finalized.

The Riverhead Farmers Market has been hosted at 221 E. Main St. since Nov. 1 after appearing along the Peconic Riverfront this summer.
