Down to Earth Markets brings together two kinds of vendors: local farmers and area food makers who source locally. By incorporating qualified producers into our markets, they expand upon the traditional farmers market. More local food entrepreneurs find a venue to sell their products directly to shoppers. In turn, shoppers benefit by discovering a greater offering of local foods at the markets. Best yet, regional agriculture thrives, as more businesses source from area farms.
Two fun facts:
Did you know you could search recipes on their site?
And – that the Farmers Market is Open until December 29th!
When River Knoll is completed and our apartments occupied by new and returning “locals”, we look forward to letting them know about this type of wonderful community resource that helps to build community, support sustainability, and increase awareness of living healthfully!
About the Project
River Knoll is a proposed 188-unit luxury rental development to be situated on the former Stony Lodge Hospital property in Ossining, NY. The project will include 169 market-rate units and 19 affordable units. These units will be geared to appeal to empty-nesters and area professionals.
As the sponsor of the project, we are committed to developing responsibly and we’ve listened carefully to the concerns of the community. As such, our plan preserves 75% of the property as permanent green space (approx. 14 acres) and maintains existing meadows, preserves existing stands of mature trees, and creates extensive green buffers to all adjoining properties. Additionally, we pay for new extensive roadway improvements to Route 9A to ease rush-hour traffic, we will install a state-of-the-art storm water management system to prevent area flooding, and River Knoll will be designed in a Hudson Valley architectural vernacular that we believe will be warmly received upon completion.
We invite you to learn more about our planned community at www.riverknollossining.com and we welcome you to visit us at the property. Simply give us a call… 914-594-5099
