Springing Forward: Looking Back at the Ithaca Winter Market

The Ithaca Farmers Market: if you’re like us, the very name conjures up summery images of ripe fruit, bright flowers, and refreshing lemonade by the water at Steamboat Landing. But the Farmers Market is actually the name of the cooperative, made up of 150 vendors who live within 30 miles of Ithaca, NY. Whether they’re agricultural vendors, local artists and craftspeople, or food vendors, the people who make up the Farmers Market are here year-round. When it’s too cold to brave Steamboat Landing, they set up shop at The Space at Greenstar for the Ithaca Winter Market.

Tomorrow, March 30th, is the last day of the 2013 Ithaca Winter Market. Come support the people who keep the spirit of local food and crafts alive through the long winter months! (And for those who are hankering for spring, take heart: the Saturday market at Steamboat Landing starts next weekend, April 6th.)
