Most of the farmers markets are closed for the season, but there will be a winter farmers market again in Plattsburgh at the City Recreation Center on the Old Base Oval on Saturdays from Oct. 20 to Dec. 22. For more information about that market, visit www.plattsburghfarmersmarket.com.
You can also check our Local Food Guide to contact individual farmers about what products they still have available, or visit www.adirondackharvest.com to search for particular items and sources.
In response to all the enthusiastic feedback we got after our Food From the Farm dinner last March, we’ve decided to offer a local food event quarterly, each one a little different from the other. Our next local food event will be at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, at SUNY Plattsburgh. The meal will be planned, prepared and served by the college’s culinary arts students and will feature local food. This dinner is part of our annual meeting. For details about this event, see today’s Home Briefs.
