What’s Fresh This Week – January 13

 You Like Us! You Really Like Us!

“We established a new routine this past winter that includes going to Schenectady Greenmarket in Proctors every Sunday morning. We go for milk, eggs, veggies, and the like, and can end up leaving with hand cream, honey, granola, candles, jam, bread, cheese curds, you name it. This is my first farmer’s market experience, and I feel very lucky to live just five minutes away from one of the best in the area.” – User JB K on Yelp

“The Greenmarket is wonderful. I have cut my grocery store shopping down by at least 50%. I was surprised at the local produce I could buy over the winter…It is also a fantastic venue for local small businesses.” – Susan L. on LocalHarvest.org

I'm an events planner by day, a food blogger by night! I have always loved cooking and baking (especially), and was organically trained in culinary skills by my talented and resourceful mother. When it comes to food, I am sometimes inspired, sometimes lazy, and just about always hungry. My favorite food is hummus.
