We’re huge fans of Ridge Hill in Yonkers (read our review here) because the expansive outdoor shopping center is not only beautiful but packed with our favorite shops and restaurants. On Friday, August 24, spend the afternoon shopping at Ridge Hill then listen to their last free outdoor concert of the season. At 4:00 pm, see the kids’ rock band Yosi and the Superdads (photo below) and at 6:00 pm, enjoy the Jukebox Heroes Live, a musical event with incredible impersonations of Elvis, Jerry Lewis, Garth Brooks, The Beach Boys, Neil Diamond and more. Rock out with your family and have dinner at one of the many restaurants like The Cheesecake Factory, Havana Central or Texas de Brazil. See the full list of restaurants here. Westchester’s Ridge Hill: One Ridge Hill Boulevard, Yonkers.
Take Your Doll to Tea at the Voracious Reader in Larchmont on Saturday, August 25 at 2:30 pm. Bring your child’s favorite doll to hear Kevin Henke’s new book, “Penny and her Doll”. Then, enjoy a real tea party complete with tea sandwiches, scones with Devon cream and jam, cupcakes, pink lemonade and tea for the adults. After the story, each child will have the opportunity to introduce their doll. Tea party is $30 for parent and child which includes 10% off the book “Penny and her Doll”. For ages 4-7.

You may have noticed that Wee Westchester loves farmers markets, but how about a farmers market on an actual farm with animals! Muscoot Farm‘s Sunday Farmers Market is from 10:00-3:00 every Sunday until October. Take a tour of the farm, see the animals and shop for all-natural goodies. Picnic tables are available so buy your lunch from one of the many vendors and picnic in the beautiful setting of Muscoot Farm. Highlights include wine from one of Hudson Valley’s top vineyards, artisan breads, chutney from Bombay Emerald Chutney Co, homemade pasta, all natural soap and candles, fresh honey, organic meat from JohnBoy’s Farm and more. Muscoot Farm is located one and half miles south of the intersection between Route 35 and Route 100 in the town of Somers on Route 100.
