Dancing in the Streets in Bronxville at First Annual Oktoberfest; See Photos PDF Print Email


By Nicole Tuck, Director, Bronxville Chamber of Commerce

Oct. 17, 2018:  Sunday, October 7, marked the first annual Bronxville Oktoberfest. Hundreds of people came out, filing long tables along Park Place. The weather was perfect for dancing to The Polka Brothers, who entertained the crowd with cover songs set to Polka music.  

Local merchants provided food and beverages, which brought a festive feel to the streets of Bronxville. Pete’s Park Place Tavern set the scene by dressing the part in their lederhosen and serving German food and Oktoberfest Beer. The Taco Project made a grand appearance and was a welcome addition with their tacos and corn (they will have a permanent home on Pondfield soon). Ladle of Love served traditional hot pretzels and “Beer Stew” with craft beer provided by Bronxville’s Beer Noggin. Dobbs & Bishop was on hand with individual cheese plates. Found Herbal saved the day with energy shots and “Hangover Tea.” JC Fogarty’s grilled a variety of meat on the street.

Games of giant Jenga, corn hole, hopscotch, and giant ping pong were enjoyed by children and their parents. Merit Auto Body and Bronxville Motors donated beer steins for Oktoberfest goers to enjoy and keep as a reminder of the fun festival.

The turnout was bigger than anticipated and a second band played on Park Place until 7:00 pm. The Chamber is planning to build on the success of this event in 2019.

A special thank-you to the event sponsors, our local merchants that love our community: Pete’s Park Place Tavern, Merit Auto Body, Bronxville Motors, JC Fogarty’s, The Taco Project, Mrs. Morgan’s Flower Shop, Paws and Play Pet Resort, Ladle of Love, and Found Herbal.

If you missed the Oktoberfest 2018, mark your calendar for the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend 2019. The Polka Brothers will return to Park Place.

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


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.


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.


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. 


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. 


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.
