For the residents of Ithaca, going to the Farmer’s Market has become as treasured of an outing as any night on the town. There are several locations around town that rotate through most of the days of the week, but the big weekend market days are unmistakably the best.
Hosted in a large, airy, waterfront pavilion, the Ithaca Farmer’s Market has something for everyone. With cuisine ranging from Sri Lankan to Korean to the standard breakfast burrito, you can snack as you peruse the local vendors and merchants, pick up a fresh bouquet of flowers, or just sit by the water and listen to the live musicians.
