It's almost farmers market and pick-your-own time in the South Nassau and Rockaways area !

We love supporting our local farmers. Plus, it's fun for the whole family to visit a farmers market in Long Beach or the Rockaways and more places!

Here are three things to note before heading out to farmers markets in Long Beach, Malverne, Rockville Centre, Baldwin and the Rockaways:

  • Bring your own containers or bags to avoid any extra charges! 
  • Bring cash as some local farmer market stands don't take credit cards.
  • Some farmer markets in Long Beach - Oceanside - Rockville Centre might have rules or requests in place due to COVID. Please check their websites or social media sites before heading out!

Here are the details on local South Nassau farmers markets:
