Cambridge, NY Life Cambridge, NY Life

You all may be wondering where Cambridge, NY Life has gone. Well let me tell you that 31 days of rain has not dampened the activity around here, and we have been very busy. Last weekend was the annual Cambridge Valley Balloon Festival. Only two balloons were able to launch due to weather, but town was filled with folks walking on Main Street, listening to music, and generally enjoying our shops and markets. One place that was really hopping was our local food co-op.

Our Village Store Co-op is one of the oldest in the area. For more than 25 years, it has been offering locally grown and organic produce. Though the Co-op has a paid manager, the members staff the counters, stock the shelves, and create a wonderful atmosphere for shopping. You can't beat the quality of the spices the Co-op offers or the variety of cheeses you can choose from. Members can order in bulk or buy "off the shelves." As a member you work one, 3-hour shift a month to receive your members discount. The Co-op is always a great place to catch-up with friends, sample a tasty treat, and stock your pantry.

Another of my favorite places in town is the Historical Society. The Historical Society has a wonderful collection of antiques and memorabilia from the Cambridge Valley. There is much to learn about the history of our town, region, and the people that lived here before us. I highly recommend a visit.
