Hayfields Market and Chef Rory Crumm

You’re likely to stand in line with equestrians in jodhpurs and landscapers in dirt-stained jeans. Pardon us as the small children race past you to the bakery window, bellying up and wide-eyed. There’s an old-timey feel to this converted gas station where food and drink are generously proportioned and robustly flavored. A community hub has been established and this corner lot has become a corner stone. Located in the heart of upper Westchester, Hayfields is situated along the border of N.Y. and Conn. The food is homemade and fresh. The floral is unique and custom. Our service is friendly and goods are cost-effective. We cater to everyone offering a variety that meets the needs of the community while maintaining an agricultural & market vibe.
