November 10, and the outdoor farmers market season in the upstate NY area of the "Triple Cities"(Binghamton, Endicott and Johnson City, plus some other communities) is just about over.
Today, our high temperature was 51, and we are supposed to be in the low 60's tomorrow. The Otsiningo outdoor farmers market is gone for the years so we visited a market in Vestal, NY that we normally don't go to. There were only four tables but I encouraged my spouse to give it a try, and I am so glad we did.
Thank you, Sue Garig, of Honey & Garlic in Kirkwood, NY for allowing me to take these pictures.
And also honey brittle in three varieties: peanut, walnut, and slivered almond. (it was very good, but a bit hazardous for people with lots of fillings)
From another vendor, we bought some swiss chard that will be going into a soup.
From still another vendor we bought a dozen eggs.
Other items for sale included apples, turnips and turnip greens, cauliflower, mint, and winter squash.
If you are in a cold clime and still have outdoor farmers markets, give them a shot even if they look sparse. You'll be glad you did.
