I've had trouble finding fresh good looking produce but having this on a Wednesday is really for whom? Have it on the weekend or not at all. We may be better served by listing all of the good places referred to above that serve our needs year round.

Transients??????? You've got to be kidding me! These so called "transients" are Long Island residents trying to make a living! How nice to know that fresh produce, grown on Long Island, are available to the public for a nominal fee. These hard working people are not taking business away from Port stores. They are enhancing our opportunity to buy delicious delicacies for our families. Don't you ever go to the mall to buy items that are not sold in Port Washington? It is nice to know that we are able to buy produce that is grown locally instead of buying food grown in other countries.

I didn't refer to the workers as transient, I called the market itself transient. That means it can come or go since it has no fixed structure. I think that is a correct description. No offense to the "hard working people." I just prefer to shop at my local year round merchants. Any many of them supply Long Island produce.

I am so excited that they are back again this year. They did not put up the sign that they usually have announcing when it opens. Best products, locally grown.
