Last Farmers Market of the Year

On Friday, we got up to 64 degrees in Binghamton, New York.  By Saturday morning, it was snowing lightly, the warmth and sun of the previous day already a distant memory.

Our local farmers market is a year round indoor market, and on days like this, people flock there to buy seasonal items.  For us, it was eggs and brisket.  For others, Christmas cookies and other holiday goods.

For sale were mushrooms...

Potatoes and beets....

and celeriac.  Not shown, someone selling local romaine lettuce.  Baked goods, honey, and meat rounded out the market.

Across the parking lot, there is a "Taste New York" store that shares space with the headquarters for the local organic farming association.

Perhaps one day soon, the sun will come out again.

So hard to believe that there's only one week left to the year.

  1. That is quite the weather change.
    I've never heard of celeriac before.

  2. It's great that the market is all year. Natural that it would have to be indoors at this time of year.
