Specific products may be granted an exception if produced off Long Island, if such product is unavailable from a Long Island producer, and product is still deemed to be “local” within NY state, or neighboring state.
We strive to have a wide variety of products at the market from as many vendors as possible. Every attempt will be made to separate competing vendors in the market given that enough space is available to do so.

Additionally, vendors are responsible for complying with any other applicable laws and regulations regarding their participation in the market.
