It’s the first chef demo of the spring and its going to be delicious! You can find out more about Debbie and all she has to offer by checking out her Facebook page or by visiting her on the web at or
Local Artisan
Jaja Requa, who graduated from Parsons in 1999 with an A.A.S in fashion design and then went on to design for Bugle Boy and Yves Saint-Luarent, is bringing her exciting fashions for both adults and kids to the Market.
These unique, quality handmade clothes are grounded in the belief that one can break the rules and look good doing it, and she does!

Special Event – Garden Tool Swap
Its another first for the Market! Here is a great idea and depending on how good this one goes, we would like to plan several more “swap” events. Here is how it works, gather up your gently used garden tools, the ones you don’t need and bring them to the Market to share, trade or barter for something you need.
Sharpen your bargaining skills and come trade with your neighbors and make new friends. Gossett Brothers Nursery will donate a pack of organic seeds to everyone who trades at the event. You can find more information at The Katonah Green Calendar.
Thanks to Stacyknows, EcoKaren Lee and Slow Food Westchester for help in getting the word out and to Teich Garden Systems who is giving out tools  to “swap” participants.
