“At Baldor, we know our customers care deeply about where their food comes from,” said TJ Murphy, CEO of Baldor Specialty Foods. “And what better way for our restaurateurs and chefs to get to know the people who grow their food than by bringing them all together at our Baldor BITE farmers market.”

The market will feature a full array of freshly harvested items such as asparagus, berries, ramps and organic specialty citrus.
“On any given day, Baldor offers its customers hundreds of produce, dairy, meats and organics that have been sourced locally,” said Benjamin Walker, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The farmers market at our BITE event serves to remind our customers our pledge to support local farms and introduce them to the best and most unique varieties available.”
Baldor BITE will be held on Tuesday, April 28th, 2020 from noon-to-5 pm at Pier 36’s Basketball City located at 299 South Street in NYC’s historic Seaport District.
