August 7, 2012 Old Rochester Farmers' Market

 Week Ten of the Old Rochester Farmers' Market!  We have been able to celebrate the abundance of summertime together, and we have enjoyed it.  This week brings along some fabulous, fresh and dynamic vegetables, fruits, cheeses, meats, breads and more.  Interested in an olive oil that is pure deliciousness from California?  Omega Olive Oil brings it to you.  Are you looking for some amazingly vibrant vegetables for your menu this week, or for preserving for the winter?  Cervelli Farm and Skinny Dip Farm have you covered for your diverse shopping list.  Come along to Old Rochester Regional Junior High School between 3-7pm tomorrow.  You will be glad you did.
