The Elmont Farmer's market opened this past Thursday at the Alva T. Stanforth Parking lot located next to the Elmont Public Library. Elmont residents streamed into the market to purchase fruits, vegetables, plants, juices, breads, fish and baked goods. State Senator Jack Martins attended the opening of the market and met with residents. "Today's opening of the Farmer's Market in Elmont was truly sensational. This would never have happened without the work and vision of Muzzio Tallini and the support of the Chamber of Commerce and Elmont community. The quality selection of food was terrific and won rave reviews. I bought some strawberries, vegetables and juice and will be back for more! This market is a hit and, in speaking with the families shopping, a real boost to Elmont's continuing revitalization!"
