Halloween at Ithaca Farmers Market

Pumpkins are in and Fall greens are lush. Lettuces, cabbages, spinach, kale, escarole, and lots more are in great abundance at market. This was a great year for peppers of all kinds and there is still a good variety of types and colors. I still have peppers in my garden that I will be picking in the next few days.

Halloween is tomorrow and some vendors will be giving out candy at The Ithaca Farmers market. Dress up as your alter ego and enjoy good cheer.

Take note that Ithaca Farmers Market hours are changing after this weekend:

October hours remain the same for this weekend: Sat. 9-3pm Sun. 10-3pm

Starting next week Nov. 6th, November hours change to both Sat. and Sun. 10-2pm

Nov. 6th Daylight savings time

The last Sunday market of the year is Sun. Nov. 28th.

December market hours are Saturdays only 10-2pm

The Rutabaga Curl is Sat. Dec. 18th from 10-2


I read a few different articles last week about 40 shipping containers falling off a ship and into the Pacific Ocean. They are still there or sunk. One article said they caught on fire.

Over the 22 years we've been in business, now is one of the trickiest times for small and mid sized businesses to keep going. Small business is the life blood of any society. It's where people meet, great, celebrate, and find purpose. Think about who you support and what you get in return. The future you want depends on it.

Our prices have not increased in quite a while, and we have bulk pricing to alleviate the pressure that may be affecting your holiday budget.

Unfortunately we can not control shipping times, pricing, or supply line interruptions. I am a plan ahead person and I am suggesting you do the same.

Lip Balm is still the best hair conditioner

I did some more hair conditioner experiments. For a few weeks, I went back to plain olive oil after hair washing using the same technique as the lip balm. Then I had a very busy week and didn't condition my hair at all. After that I returned to hair washing and using LiXTiK as hair conditioner. Once again, I like the lip balm the best.
