Each Thursday morning at 6 am, over a dozen vendors arrive in the municipal parking lot in Nyack. Two hours later, a tent village has risen from the asphalt. Crates of locally grown produce and boxes of fresh baked goods are presented for sale on folding tables. Since May 10th, I have recorded this vibrant expression of the commercial life of our village each week as the first artist-in-residence for Nyack’s Farmers’ Market.
