Have you ever been to Cazenovia, New York? If you read Budget Traveler, maybe you’ve heard of it. Cazenovia placed second in the magazine’s annual contest, Coolest Small Towns in America.
I’d never even heard of Cazenovia, but serendipity stepped in and offered me a chance to visit.
I’m just back from that trip, and Cazenovia has my vote. I’m going to tell you all about it in another post, but first I have to share these beautiful autumn market colors with you.
I think one of the best ways to discover an area is to visit local markets. The products being sold there tell you a lot about the people: their sensibilities, values, passions, and lifestyle.
The Cazenovia Farmer’s Market is located in Canon Park, on Albany Street, and is held every Saturday from the 10th of May to the 1st of November. I was there last Saturday in the pouring rain. I chatted with almost all of the vendors and commented that I was surprised they were open. One woman who makes lovely pottery said, “But of course, you’re here.” Most said, “A little rain won’t stop me.” That pretty much sums up the personality of Cazenovia.
Winter market dates are November 15, December 20, January 17, February 21, March 21, and April 18th. The market is open from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
I hope you’ll enjoy the vibrant fall colors, beautiful produce, and a few sneak peeks of what I’ll be sharing in my next post on Cazenovia.
Do you visit markets when you travel? Do you enjoy visiting small towns?
p.s. The Cazenovia Farmer’s Market moves indoors for the winter to American Legion Post 88.
