Local Saturday - Sweetness and Crackers

The year is almost over - less than two weeks left. 

It's a busy time of year for many.  My spouse and I try t keep it low key.

Today, we visited a farmers market for the last time this year.

In Binghamton, New York, our farmers market has gone indoors.  Our growing season is long over, but that doesn't stop our farmers.
These are some of my favorite crackers.  Seeds, olive oil, and whole wheat flour make an unbeatable combination.
Honey - so colorful - lines these shelves.  There is light colored spring honey, medium colored summer honey and dark fall honey.   The mix of flowers varies by season-everything from sumac, locust, then the later flowers- buckwheat and hardy Japanese bamboo (knotweed).

There were some apples and root veggies left, too.

Today, after the market, I potted up three amaryllis.  Of the three, only one bloomed this past year.  We'll wish them a more productive 2015.

Do you still have local farmers markets open?


  1. I love little community market. I try to support Mom and Pop places.
    Coffee is on

  2. A few of our farmers markets are open but they close after this month. Mostly they are selling items like baked goods and honey.
