The Riverdale Y Sunday Market provides fresh, high-quality food grown or produced locally to within 100 miles. This family-friendly seasonal market is a community building gathering place for shopping and socializing, providing activities for children (and their parents) as well as music and fun! The market also fosters a direct connection between local shoppers and the small-scale farmers and food producers who the market champions. The market works to support sustainable agricultural practices.

November 2nd: Tom Chapin with special guest, Dr. Ruth Westheimer
Tom Chapin’s performances appeal to all ages, his songs tell the stories of our times. As a music-maker, Chapin has maintained two long and productive parallel careers, both as a respected contemporary folk artist and as a pioneer in the field of children's music. Chapin presents a lively, interactive and fun-filled performance. His witty, life-affirming original songs convey positive messages about family, good food and the green earth. Lend your voice, sing a round, learn a song in sign language and discover the music of a didjeridoo.
Dr. Ruth Westheimer, noted therapist, author, and celebrity first performed with Mr. Chapin on his Grammy-nominated 2000 album This Pretty Planet on the track Two Kinds of Seagulls. Since then, the two friends have sung to children at shows and performances around the country.

In the event of inclement weather, concerts are held at the Riverdale Y!
