Meet Peter and Alain

Our Saturdays would not feel complete without seeing our pals Peter and Alain.  They come every week to the Peekskill Farmer’s Market along with their dog, Nina.  We always share many good laughs and interesting conversations.  Peter and Alain are such devout and loyal shoppers at the market that they text us if they will be late.  They practice healthy shopping, meal preparation and eating for themselves and for Nina, who gets regular cholesterol checks too!  Peter and Alain are two of the kindest and generous people we know.  This past week they lost their home in Florida to a hurricane.  Our thoughts and prayers are with them and everyone who fell victim to the hurricanes.
