Pura Vida, Flying Pig, John Fazio, and more!

This Friday's market is a duplicate, for the most part, of last Friday's, so I think this is the Winter Market for a while. Plenty of root vegetables, a surprising variety of greens at Norwich Meadow's stand, and good looking vegetables at Rogowski's as well. Miglorelli has those AND some interesting frozen vegetables. If you're in the mood for pickles, stop off at Divine Brine or Beth's Farm Kitchen. Beth's also has their seasonal Meyer Lemon and Blood Orange marmalades. John Fazio made their rabbit sausage into links this week. No Cayuga today.
