I had an all-American small-town Fourth of July. I went to the new Honeoye Farmer’s Market on Saturday. Red, white, and blue was the theme-grilled hot dogs, apple pie, and blueberries. I really enjoyed talking with local vendors such as Garry and Bobbi with Wohlschlegels Naples Maple Farm. Samples of their products such as maple sugar crème and maple syrup were available. It reminded me of going to their open house in March. There I got to see the sap flowing from the trees. Now able to buy the syrup is what ‘buying local’ is all about.
Another local farm vendor, selling fresh picked produce came from White’s Farm Market in Bloomfield. I also chatted with Laura with Cheshire Inn Creations featuring fresh baked goods, such as breads, cookies, and pies. Another highlight of the Market was the local fire department fleet and classic, old cars. I snacked on a delicious grilled hotdog, and some fresh squeezed lemonade.
This was my first time to the Honeoye Market…and I look forward to going back. Topping off my weekend, I watched fireworks shooting over Honeoye Lake launched from Sandy Bottom Park. All together it was a wonderful weekend with small-town flare.
