Winter farmer's market, Binghamton, New York, March 10.
You can still find some late fall crops from last year - apples, garlic, parsnips, carrots, and potatoes.
But joining them are items like local honey, meats, and dairy products.
And, in the past year, one vendor has started to sell mushrooms. These are a most delicious addition to mushroom lovers like me and my spouse - so fresh, and so good.
This reminds us that we are negligent in doing our seed inventory, and preparing for the gardening season ahead. We are downsizing - only getting one community garden plot instead of two.
Yes, a local farmers market can remind us of our own garden, slumbering under a blanket of snow.
We've ordered our onions (will probably get our seeds locally this year) and dream of the warming days ahead.
