Summer brings not only warm weather and sunshine, it also means the return of outdoor farmers markets. Recently we visited the outdoor farmers market at the Ridge Hill Shopping Center in Yonkers. Ridge Hill is a unique outdoor shopping experience that draws patrons from all over. The center is conveniently located between the Sprain Brook Parkway and the New York State Thruway.
The farmers market will feature fresh food and drink from Sasha’s Seafood, Wave Hill Breads, and many more. Live music adds to the fun atmosphere of the market.
As a bonus after shopping at the market you can visit and shop at stores such as Apple, H&M, L.L. Bean, Orvis, Whole Foods, just to name a few.
Ridge Hill also has a variety of dining options including Public Pizza, Lefteris Gyro, and more.
The market starts June 4th and is held every Friday 11 am to 5pm
Live music is back ! After a year of experiencing no live music due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, it is great to see concert venues like the Wall Street Theater open for business. The theater is a true architectural landmark that was built in 1914 and opened as “The Regent” theater. It hosted live acts as well as movies. Over the many decades the theater has gone through numerous owners and name changes. Currently this beautiful event space is owned by a 501c3 non profit organization and features live concerts and shows, cinema and more.
Recently we traveled to the theater to enjoy one of its Summer Concert Series performances. These concerts are held outside in the parking lot behind the theater. We enjoyed a concert from Tusk, one of the premier Fleetwood Mac tribute bands in the country. The band was excellent and the two hour show included many songs from Fleetwood Mac’s deep catalog of songs. The band accurately performed many hits from Rumors, as well as reached back into the early days of the band to deliver a blues medley. The outdoor setting of a warm May evening with the sun setting over Norwalk added to the overall experience. The current calendar of concerts and events is on their website and will feature both outdoor and indoor performances. Live music is back and it’s time to get out to the Wall Street Theater in Norwalk.
