Exploring

During our growing season very rarely do I get to explore our world off the farm.  Fall is my time!  One of my favorite places to go is the farmers market, any farmers market.  Saturday I ventured to the Syracuse Regional Market.

Mmmm...you can actually smell the fresh bread.

Pumpkins, gourds, squash...all the colors of fall are abound.  

I came home with a 1/2 peck of Honeycrisp Apples.  Did you know Honeycrisp Apples were produced from a 1960 cross of Macoun and Honeygold, as part of the University of Minnesota apple breeding program.  I love them!

I was so surprised to see that Crepe's were being made at the market!  Alleluia!!!  
 
Unfortunately, I ate before I came.  Next time...
 
I fell in love with these crates.
 
New York Maple Syrup is the finest!  I had the opportunity to speak  to the owner of Red School House.  They started from a meager beginnings to a state of the art facility in a short amount of time.  And I loved their packaging.  Check them out they are located in Fulton, NY.

Brussels Sprouts on in season!
 
 This goes without saying...

Their was something about this gentlemen in a T shirt with 50 degrees outside and his purchase of carrots.  I was cold, all bundled up and could use something hot to drink.  Maybe I should be eating more carrots.
Rows after rows of vegetables, fruit and flowers.




Flour City Pasta makes pasta with organic flour and then adds organic vegetables, fruits, herbs and spices.  I have purchased lavender pasta from them in the past.
 
My purchases from the day.  Apple Cider from Red Jacket Orchards, Maple Cream and Maple Syrup and Oatmeal from Red School House, Honeycrisp Apples and Apple Raisin Bread.

 
I discovered this market last year and have found some creative artists.
 
 I love these purses by Barbara Conte Gaugel.

Amy Fancher, is a free lance artist that has worked with many medians.  I love her screen printing.

 I need this T shirt.

On this visit I found Tara Hogan and her company INK + WIT.  She is a designer and illustrator and has wonderful letterpress cards.  


Betsy Menson Sio makes unique recycled tin pendants and earrings.


 Betsy, Jan Fairhurst, Christy Lemp and I will be participating a in a Holiday Open House on Saturday, December 3rd.  Watch for more information. 

Thanks for tagging along.  Where will I go next?
