Greenport Farmers’ Market will remain inside this spring and summer.
The market, which moved indoors last fall, allowing it to operate during the winter for the first time, is staying put, according to its president, Dorothy Catapano, who also owns Catapano Farms in Southold.
“It was popular throughout the winter,” she said. “We’re really excited because it is in the heart of the village and people can access it easily.”(more…)

“A lot of farmers have winter produce and goods that they would like to sell,” said Greenport Farmers Market president Dorothy Catapano, who also owns Catapano Farms in Southold. “It is a great opportunity for the village, our local farmers and community artisans, because it gives us a place to sell our stuff and it gives people another reason to come to Greenport.” (more…)
The Greenport Farmers Market is returning for its eight season this Saturday. This year the market will set up shop in a new location at the Polo Grounds on Moores Lane just outside the heart of the village. (more…)

Co-owners Liz and David Shanks are currently seeking a wine license to bottle their own brand. The couple currently sells the grapes from the 24-acre vineyard to Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack. (more…)
