Ithaca Farmers Market: "A Produce Slam Dunk," Says New York Times

The Ithaca Farmers Market was featured in today's New York Times.

"Macrobiotic eaters mingle with skilled chefs along the covered wooden walkways" of the Market, the Times writes, describing the Market as "a produce slam dunk."

Among the Market's produce purveyors, the article focuses on (literally, with a nice photo) Red Tail Farm. We visit Red Tail's booth regularly for the excellent organic salad mix.

You might want to get to their booth early tomorrow. Along with this publicity, new Cornell students and families arrive today, too, and might be out in force at the Market tomorrow (with families) - even if they didn't know, as the article states, that here in the Finger Lakes region, they are in a "mini-Napa Valley" that is "just a really great place to eat."
