Local Finds

Welcome to the Farmer’s Market

My first semester at Cornell, I religiously went to the Farmer’s Market every Saturday. Even those Saturday’s in November and December, when it was freezing winds. Second semester, the market moved inside, my work picked up and I never made it to the inside market. Maybe it was because it was just not the same. (Or maybe because admittedly I could never find its new location…) The Farmer’s Market moved back to its original splendor and magical location at Steamboat Landing. There are food vendors, bakeries, wineries, produce, homemade pasta, florists, artisans, jewelers…the list goes on. While the produce isn’t at its peak, here’s a mere sampling of everything Ithaca!

Basil-mozzarella wood-fired pizza enjoyed on the docks.

Reaping from the day: rhubarb for a strawberry-rhubarb compote or rhubarb tart, spicy garlic pesto and fresh flowers. Don’t forget about the already-enjoyed wood-fired pizza!

Garlic Scape Pesto has the taste of roasted garlic straight from the oven. Extremely fresh and spicy! Found here.

Trip to the fantastic inn and bar, Argos. They specialize in gin and whiskey and have a beautiful outside patio area. I requested a drink with mint, citrus and gin and had this delicious concoction.

It was (hopefully) the perfect amount of Ithaca for Isabelle’s birthday! #23yearsyoung
