Rocky Point Farmers Market Off To Disappointing Start!

Second Sunday a Disappointment!

In support of the Rocky Point Farmers Market I visited for the second week in a row dragging my enthusiastic wife along with me this time @ 9AM. After a 3-4 booth week the first week I told her they were expecting at least 8 today. Well, it was the same 3-4 as last week. The vendors were again cordial and a pleasure to be around but there really was No Farmers Market yet! We did make a purchase and I told my wife I heard there was a Sunday Farmers Market on Main Street in Pt. Jeff. We headed that way.

Though Pt. Jeff is a pain to deal with because of traffic, we found a very well represented and organized Farmers Market. They do not allow "flea market" type merchandise sold there. The assortment of fruits, vegetables, plants, cheeses, pies, breads, goat product, plants, and many things produce related was outstanding.

Rocky Point Farmers Market needs to learn a lesson from this, take a good look at it, and model themselves after it.

I would rather support Rocky Point and the economic health of the Broadway area but until the Farmers Market become a serious endeavour I'll be headed to Pt. Jeff on Sundays.

I'm calling BS on your post! I was at the Pt. Jeff Market, took care to see where they were from and the products they offered. It was a well done representation of the not so far off east end: Ridge, Calverton, Riverhead etc. There is no reason Rocky Point couldn't have done the same. Again I'm calling BS on your post. Rocky Point needs to get their act together (once again) if they want to be succesful. Which by the way I am hoping for!

What a difference a few weeks have made. The additions of Davis Peach Farm, Rocky Point Artisnal Brewery, and better selection of products from Earth Farms have really helped this market. I still hope it gets larger as I like to walk around these type markets on a nice day. Hope the market is a success for the rest or the season and maybe even into the fall? Glad this market has become worth going to. Nice Job to all involved! (But keep those vendors coming!)
