If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by the whirlwind of recipes that come to mind when visit a farmer’s market, you may want to head over to the lobby of the Ritz Carlton first. At 2 p.m., Executive Sous Chef Kennardo Holder will take foodies over to the White Plains market for an exclusive walk through of the vendors. This one-on-one experience is free and open to the public.

The White Plains Farmer’s Market sets up shop every Wednesday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Court St. between Martine Ave. and Main St.
