Today, I made my first trip in a couple of years to the Ithaca, NY farmers market at Steamboat Landing. Ithaca is about an hour from where I live so I don't visit too often.
Ithaca is the home to Cornell University and Ithaca College, and when you see what they have available to their citizens, you would think the population is a lot higher than it really is.
Traffic is always terrible (one of the downsides of Ithaca, sadly) and if you don't get there early, you may as well give up on getting a parking space. (Yes, we should use mass transit or bicycle - but we do live an hour away and are not athletes.)
It's fall in upstate NY, and the harvests are in. "Buy Local", a sign implores.
No shortage of organic produce here, either - or organic animal products. We bought eggs at one vendor and corn at another; garlic at a third and eggplant at a fourth.
Bread not Bombs. (remember, this is a college town).
