SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. – Phelps Memorial Hospital is bringing back its farmers market beginning Thursday at Rockwood Hall in Sleepy Hollow.
The market will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursdays through November at the Rockwood Hall area of Rockefeller State Park Preserve at the end of Route 117. This year's market will again be run by Hastings food writer Pascale Le Draoulec. Le Draoulec also runs famers markets in Hastings, Irvington and Chappaqua.

Parking for the farmers market will be available at the Rockwood Hall parking lot.
