CELBEBRATE AUTUMN'S ARRIVAL AT THE 3rd ANNUAL GHGWBA'S FARMERS MARKET AND SMALL BUSINESS SHOWCASE ON SEPTEMBER 25
September 22, 2016 -- The Glen Head Glenwood Business Association along with the First National Bank of Long Island will sponsor its third annual Farmer's Market and Local Business Showcase on Sunday September 25, 2016 from 10 am to 4 pm in the bank parking lot at the corner of Roosevelt Street and Glen Head Road in the center of Glen Head.
This will truly be a shop local event with the Rottkamp family of Old Brookville, who have for more than 60 years been growing potatoes, tomatoes, corn, leafy greens and a rich variety of other vegetables on their McCoun's Lane farm, selling their fresh produce, and four dozen Business Association members and local community organizations offering wares for sale as well as information about the services they provide.
The market will no doubt be a great opportunity for many in the community to be introduced to the local shop owners and proprietors whose storefronts they may pass everyday, but have never ventured inside to see the wide assortment of goods and services that are offered right in their midst.
“Whether it’s a local coffee shop, gift shop, hardware store, pharmacy, restaurant, farm or a service-oriented business, we will showcase our wonderful local business community," said Deborah Orgel-Gordon, a GHGWBA officer, who was a driving force behind starting the market two years ago. “When you shop locally, your money is pumped back into the local economy creating more tax revenue, and a thriving business district helps boost residential property values. Shopping locally also creates local jobs. And, many of our local businesses give back to the community through donations to our schools and civic organizations.”
The Glen Head Glenwood Business Association has been actively engaged in promoting local business and supporting the North Shore Community for over 40 years and currently has over 130 members.
