Community members attend eighth annual fall outdoor market


Nassau County Legislator Kevan Abrahams hosted his eighth annual Community Fall Outdoor Market at the Baldwin LIRR Station.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 4, the open-air community market, which is co-sponsored by Bethpage Federal Credit Union and Glory House Recovery, Inc., was bustling with eclectic shopping opportunities spread along a quarter mile between Brookside and Milburn Avenues across from Freeport High School. More than 150 vendors, offering an array of new and gently used merchandise including fashions, art, beauty, jewelry, furniture, toys and more, participated, as well as government agencies, organizations. and food vendors.

“Years ago, when my family and I moved to Freeport, we discovered that we had a large number of things that we no longer needed – but no easy way to sell them quickly,” Abrahams said. “With that experience in mind, we launched the Community Fall Outdoor Market to create a centralized, convenient opportunity for other families who were in a similar situation to ours, and the event grew from there. This will be my last community market as Legislator for the First District – and I invite you to join us and be a part of what I hope will be the best and most successful one of all!”
