Cambridge, NY Farmers' Market Season Ending
Well folks, the farmers' market season is coming to an end. Next Sunday, Oct. 22, 2006 will be the last Cambridge, NY Farmers' Market for this year. It's been a great season. We started with a cool and rainy spring, but summer blossomed into fine weather and abundant crops for local farmers.
I hope you had the chance to visit on of the more than 22 vendors that participated in our market. Besides the wonderful eats, there were tons of treats from visiting musical guests to craftsmen that demonstrated their skills and sold their creations. I thought I'd leave you with some food for thought as our market season comes to a close...
Our Featured Vendor this final week is Taylored Farm.
Mike and Kellie Taylor travel all over the northeast selling their home made salsa and all the ingredients necessary for you to create your own version of that wonderful condiment.
Kellie has generously offered to share her "Fresh Tomatillo Salsa" recipe with you. You can copy this down, or visit the Taylored Farm booth at this and next weeks' farmers' market to pick-up a copy of the recipe and other choice salsas.Kellie's Fresh Tomatillo Salsa
