Muscoot Farm — (Somers) Great working farm to bring the kids to! Cows, horses, pigs, chicken, sheep, goats, geese, tractors. In the summer they have a small farmer’s market on Sundays. Hay rides and pumpkin picking in the fall. Check out their frequent, free, special activities. They also have a trail for a short hike that’s fun with young kids. Rte 100, Katonah/Somers, NY.

Gossett Brothers Nursery Farmer’s Market — (South Salem) Organic produce, grass-fed beef, pasture eggs, artisan cheese, wholegrain breads, local artisans, native plants, baked goods, fairtrade coffee, and local honey.
Ebba — (Katonah) If you are in Katonah, definitely check out the adorable boutique Ebba on Main Street! Need a special gift but don’t know where to start? Viktoria will find the perfect one for you in this amazing little store! And you can also order Viktoria’s famous line of candles and fragrances online. I wear her Miss Marisa scent — like Kourtney Kardashian.

Bellizzi — (Mount Kisco) Great Italian food and an arcade and toddler room. You get to relax over a coffee with your husband or girlfriend while your kids are safe and have fun right near you. Try the delicious Blogger Salad — I’m the red bell pepper! Read my article about it here
Bedford Post Inn — (Bedford) I love this place! Richard Gere, the owner, frequently eats here since he just lives around the corner. The more casual Barn features local foods, organic coffee, and baked goods. I adore the decor — elegant, classy, but very inviting. There is an outdoor patio and a yoga studio upstairs. The restaurant next door is stunning and has a small bar. 954 Old Post Road in Bedford, NY.
Pour Cafe and Wine Bar — (Mount Kisco) Looking for a cool place to meet your girlfriends in the evening? Look no further! This bar/cafe in a beautiful building on Main Street is known by local moms as the place if you want to have a relaxing evening. Anthony, the owner, is a part of the Bellizzi Blogger Salad as well. Main Street, Mount Kisco, NY.
Once Upon A Child — (Balwin Place/Somers) This store is HEAVEN for all frugal moms! OUAC buys and sells new and gently-used, quality checked baby and kids clothing (infant up to size 20), furniture, toys and equipment. Bring your used items and get money on the spot, no appointment necessary. The owners Tina and Craig offer all the big brands for a fraction of the original price, and their selection is enormous. 80 Route 6, Baldwin Place, NY 10505, 914-621-0003.
