Local Sunday - Ithaca Farmers Market

Nature is beautiful.  A farmers market only reflects some of that beauty. Come with me to visit a fall Saturday market in upstate New York

A market about an hour away from where I live, located in the college town of Ithaca, New York is my favorite for sheer beauty.  It is a feast for the eye and the stomach.

There is a walking trail to the market, which is located in an area called Steamboat Landing.  You can see the market in the distance.

You are greeted with garlic, onions and other seasonal vegetables.

The produce in the early morning light of October, as the last harvests come in.
Peppers in all colors.
The chance to experience something different, such as these spilanthes.  Until today, I never experienced anything quite like them.
A festive ceiling.

As much as I enjoy going to local farmers market, I must admit to looking forward to my annual visit to Ithaca every October.
