I think you should start looking where there are organic or green grocers and go from there. If the business is there , it is there to serve the customer base in that town. That being said, consider these towns initially: Katonah, Pleasantville Village , and Pound Ridge.
If you're looking for an awesome artists' district, welcome to Peekskill!!!
You've found the right spot. Lots of interesting stuff going on here. We even have artist's lofts.
I would check back with the Peekskill Superintendant's Office to see if you can get a tour of the school. They are just finishing a super middle school here.
Great park, wonderful waterfront park where a yearly Peekskll Celebration weekend takes place. Lots more to tell you. The new Beanery Cafe, Peekskill Brewery, and more will suit your tastes for food.

Chappaqua and Armonk are beautiful and, as Zach suggests, more exclusive areas (think LI's Miracle Mile meets Westchester, albeit a little more rural or town feeling). It doesn't sound like that's what you were looking for, but I could be wrong.
