Rye Brook Chef Brings Food to Harrison Market

Anyone passing Lake Street in West Harrison Saturday was treated to an array of edible delights as the Farmers Market opened for its first day of the season. Vendors in attendance included Bronxville's Big Girl Baking and Trevi Ristorante of downtown Harrison.

People walking by were treated to free samples, fresh vegetables, and even homemade soap.

Trevi Ristorante was planted in the middle of the crowd and gave free rice balls to anyone interested. The chef and co-owner Joseph Engongoro is a native of Rye Brook and also grilled lamb scours off his lunch menu, which were also given for free.

"We're thrilled to come out and meet new people and show them our food," Engongoro said. "It's a great chance to get together and it also gives us good exposure."

The Farmers Market of West Harrison runs annually throughout the summer and ends in the middle of fall. Participants change weekly, but there are still some who vend regularly.

"I love coming out and tasting new food," passerby Stephanie Costa said. "It's things like this that make West Harrison so nice."

The market is open every Saturday until Oct. 29 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
