The second annual Rivertown Public Market, a festival celebrating the Westchester and Lower Hudson Valley food community, will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on September 14, rain or shine, at Dobbs Ferry Waterfront Park. Open to the public and free of charge beginning at noon, the event will feature local food and drinks, live music, kids’ activities and an easygoing vibe.
    New to the festival this year is VIP early entrance from 11 a.m. to noon. Guests with a VIP ticket can enjoy shorter lines, an exclusive performance by Dobbs Ferry singer-songwriter Ursula Hansberry, and a wristband required for purchasing liquor (regularly $5).
    “Public markets were once a hallmark of civic life, where producers and neighbors could meet as they went about their daily routines,” says Ali Moss, festival co-founder. “Rivertown Public Market celebrates the sense of community that defines the Rivertowns and provides a stage for our local culinary stars to share their latest creations.” Net proceeds will benefit the Rivertowns Chamber of Commerce.
    Food and drink vendors will include Baked by Susan, Samosa Shack, Irvington Delight, La Milpa de Rosa Tortillas, Harper’s, Big Bang Coffee Roasters and Westchester Burger Truck, among others. Sprig Flower Truck will be selling DIY flower crowns with fresh-cut, local blooms.
    Limited free parking will be available at the Waterfront Park and the 99 Cedar Street parking lot.

Cost: Free after noon. VIP early entrance: $25 for adults; kids under 12 free. Location: Dobbs Ferry Waterfront Park. For more info, visit RivertownPublicMarket.com.
