Have you been to the market lately?

The weather has been beautiful, the produce bountiful, the artistry spectacular… and the vibe–there’s been a great festival vibe lately. It’s that time of year where everything jibes. Can you feel it? Come on down and see it for yourself.
p.s. Don’t forget to click here to vote for Schenectady Greenmarket today in the American Farmland Trust’s poll. It’s a great/easy way to help the market.
