It's that time of year when the flowers gently nod to each other. The iris- fragile and trembling on it's long leggy stem and the wild roses blooming and tumbling all about seem to say hello. The liacs wave and bob- their scent could make you swoon. But what is really exciting to me is that the Piermont Farmers Market in Piermont, New York (indooors winter location the Palisades Community Center in Palisades, New York) celebrates their opening day TODAY- Sunday May 27, 2012 from 9:30am - 3:00pm. It is at the M & T Bank parking lot in Piermont. And the Nyack Farmers Market in Nyack, New York (at the Riverspace municipal parking lot) now in it's 15th year, has even more vendors than ever before. You can wander around every Thursday from 8:00am - 2:00pm. Both of these fresh air markets- come rain or shine- offer everything you could possibly want or need for a delicious farm to table dinner while supporting Rockland County and other local farms, gardens, producers, bakers, vintners, wild mushroom finders and fresh garlic growers. As well, both of these markets have schedules of events and entertainments- mostly music, to keep you happy while you shop. Also. remember that the retail stores in these little river towns really rely on local shoppers to support them. Shop LOCAL so that the little stores can stay in business and further contribute to your health and happiness and the health and happiness of the larger community. My standard refrain at this time of year is LOCAVORES UNITE. Live long, live well, live healthy. I would tell you to go to their websites for more information but it is much more fun to go there in person. Remember to slather on the sunblock, bring money and your own market bags. Enjoy.

"Ellen Hilburg is the best realtor I have ever known. She knows the market
cold and works tirelessly to find the home that buyers are looking for and to sell
the home her sellers have on the market. She is also a formidable negotiator. (I would
hate to be on the other side.) There are not enough positive words in the English language to
describe what an incredible real estate professional Ellen is. She is simply the best."
