OSSINING, N.Y. Community Markets, the Ossining-based non-profit organization that runs local farmer's markets, will be kicking off its "Meet the Farmer" series on Wednesday with a talk by Chip Kent, an apple farmer whose family has grown food on the banks of the Hudson River for over 200 years.
Kent will give a talk about his property and what it is like to be a farmer at Locust Grove Fruit Farm, then talk about five specific varieties of heirloom apples that people will get to sample, said Frankie Rowland, marketing and advertising director for Community Markets.
"Everyone will leave with a bag of apples," Rowland said.
The event will be held at the Community Markets' Learning Center on the third floor of 173 Main St. The cost for admission is $25 for the general public and $15 for farmers and students.
