Ithaca Farmer's Market- Part I

One of the highlights of my fun, fabulous, foodie friends weekend was a trip to the Ithaca Farmers Market.

On the waterfront, with live entertainment (some kicking banjo music), many places to sample an international buffet of cuisines, and most importantly, a large assortment of lovingly tended fresh produce and hand crafted foods and goods. A true foodie paradise.

We managed to score a pretty decent parking space and headed in, on a beautiful summer day, along with a lot of other eager shoppers.

The first thing I spotted were these fantastic looking lime green cucumbers (it's a disease - I can't pass up the color without investigating). The farmer informed me that they were thin skinned, with a sweet, tender flavor. Sign me up! I bought a half dozen and immediately snacked on one while taking in the market sights and smells.

The produce, the plants, the flowers, the food! And the people watching! What a fantastic combination.
