Bronxville Farmers' Market Is Open for Business: Gluten-Free Sweets, Fresh Chicken, Organic Eggs, and Much More PDF Print Email

alt

By Pascale Le Draoulec, Director, Bronxville Farmers' Market


Jul. 18, 2018:  Apricots and sugar snap peas are turning up at the Bronxville Farmers' Market as we celebrate the Hudson Valley's mid-summer bounty.

For sixteen years now, market tents have been set up every Saturday from May through November at the intersection of Stone and Paxton. With each passing year, the market seems to become more and more fine-tuned.

alt

This year, new vendors include Sweet Hearth Bakery, which has a super-talented baker whose creations, some laced with edible flowers, are as beautiful as they are delicious. The owner bakes without gluten, but you'd never know it. Her sweet cacao brownies, made with cauliflower puree, are some of her most popular items (even among kids), as are her gorgeous French macarons filled with raspberry beet or fennel and pistachio jam.

alt

Our certified organic vendor, Sun Sprout Farm, keeps expanding. When it joined the market, the farm in Chester, NY, black dirt country, was an upstart. But now farmer Simon Ziegler, who sells at the market, said that the farm has come into its own. He has forged special bonds with many of his customers who come to him every week for advice on what to buy and how to cook it. 

Treadlight Farm is a no-till farm in the Catskills that grows some of the prettiest flowers you ever did see. 

alt

Letterbox Farm and Gaia's Breath Farm continue to bring plump, fresh chicken and organic cuts of pork (and ridiculously good veal and pork meatballs), as well as organic farm eggs that redefine breakfast. 

alt

We also have two new coffee vendors this year. Big Bang Coffee roasts its beans in Peekskill and is quickly gaining a following among shoppers for its robust hot coffee and cold brew. Dutch Coffee Co. makes Kyoto and Nitro cold brew concoctions. They are on an alternating-week schedule.

All this, plus live music every single week to serenade you while you shop. 

See you at the market.

Susan Miele: New Store Playa Bowls Bronxville Offers Juices, Smoothies, and Bowls PDF Print Email

alt

By Susan Miele


Jul. 11, 2018: On the heels of the opening of Root & Vine Juice Bar comes Playa Bowls Bronxville, a similar dining establishment offering bowls, juices, and smoothies. The shop assumed the storefront previously occupied by Candyland.

Close to thirty Playa Bowls locations have opened up and down the East Coast, with its roots on the Jersey Shore. The brainchild of serious surfers Abby Taylor and Rob Giuliani, Playa Bowls brings to the residents of suburbia the nourishment they frequently enjoyed in their travels to Costa Rica, Panama, and other locales where they got hooked on blended bowls using acai and pitaya fruits. The Bronxville outpost represents Playa Bowls's second foray into Westchester, the first store having opened in Pleasantville about seven months ago.


alt

Both acai bowls and pitaya bowls are offered with various fruit and granola toppings, along with less common ingredients like goji berries, vanilla protein, and coconut shavings. There are also green bowls using kale, banana, pineapple, and coconut milk as a base for creativity; coconut bowls featuring raw coconut, banana, agave, and coconut milk plus assorted toppings; and banana bowls, which start with banana, honey, and almond milk. Additionally, oatmeal bowls, made from steel-cut organic oatmeal, allow for assorted toppings as well, including peanut butter, Nutella, raw cacao nibs, and figs, to name a few. Additional toppings can be added to any bowl for a dollar each, making the bowl permutations considerable.

Indeed, summer specials are on the chalkboard, including the "Summer Boost" blends banana with peanut butter and cashew milk, with toppings of fruit, almond butter, and bee pollen.


alt

Seven juices are on the menu, including "Mermaid Fuel" (kale, pineapple, apple, and mint), and eleven choices of smoothies include traditional combinations like strawberry banana and more inventive varieties like "The Dang," which features banana, wheat-grass powder, peanut butter, cinnamon, and almond milk, and "Matcha," made from matcha green tea, banana, pineapple, and coconut milk.

Ready for dessert? Chia pudding bowls are sweetened with agave and come in five varieties. Among these are the "Trailblazer," with granola, chocolate protein, banana, raw cacao, and peanut butter as toppings, and "Oh Mega," topped with banana, blueberry, hemp seeds, and agave nectar.

Bowls range in price from $8 to $11; juices (available in three sizes) range from $5.99 to $7.99; and smoothies (available in two sizes) cost $6.99 and $7.99. Committed to eco-friendliness, the shop avoids the use of plastic, instead relying on plant-based bowls, straws, cups, and spoons.

Hours are 8:00 am to 9:00 pm daily. Online orders are accepted. There is limited seating available.

Upstairs Downtown: Smart Moves Pilates, New Business in Bronxville PDF Print Email

alt

By Susan Miele


Jul. 4, 2018: While day-to-day meanderings around the Bronxville business district allow for the ease of spotting boutiques and restaurants, there are many less-visible businesses worthy of a gander. Looming above the storefronts are hundreds of facilities representing a variety of business types from service providers to non-profit organizations. We'll take a peek inside some of these hidden gems, starting with Smart Moves Pilates, located on Park Place.

Smart Moves Pilates owner Mary Siegel believes that "exercise is the medicine of the new millennium."

Siegel studied Pilates at the Kane School of Core Integration in New York City and Thai Yoga bodywork with Jonas Wresting. After a serious accident that left her with several herniated discs and chronic pain--plus a diagnosis of fibromyalgia--Siegel found relief of pain and stiffness in the Pilates method, which also offered the added benefit of breathing techniques that helped with the associated stress and anxiety. She began teaching the technique in 2000.

Located at 15 Park Place since November of 2017, Smart Moves moved to Bronxville from Oak Avenue in Tuckahoe. This is the studio's second foray in town, as Siegel previously sublet space from a chiropractor at 85 Pondfield Road until that lease expired.

Both mat and equipment classes are available, and props include Physioball, BOSU, and foam rollers. According to Siegel, instruction maintains the standard Kane School emphasis on proper biomechanics and muscular awareness.

A one-woman operation, Siegel values maintaining a close and personal relationship with her clients. She specializes in one-on-one training but anticipates forming small groups in the near future. Classes are offered by appointment Monday through Saturday beginning at 6:00 am most days. Evening appointments are also available.

First-timers can take advantage of Siegel's one-time introductory offer of three 50-minute private sessions with equipment for $200 (the second and third sessions expire three weeks after the first class). Savings are also afforded via the purchase of multi-class cards. Regular rates, which vary depending on the type of class and the number of participants (private vs. semi-private), can be found on the studio's website. Visa and MasterCard are accepted; personal checks are not.

"I'm totally invested in helping my clients understand their bodies, observe themselves, and learn to correct themselves while they work and exercise to avoid injuries," Siegel said. "I'm interested in them becoming their own advocate and applying what I teach to their everyday life because I've learned most injuries happen because of bad posture and repetitive faulty movements. And aging gracefully requires an erect, strong posture."
