  Saratoga winters are harsh. It’s cold. The snow keeps coming. We can play in the fresh drifts and warm ourselves by the fire. But ultimately the taste buds start crying for something  crunchy, tangy, and fresh.  Celeriac might be the salve.    This beige, knobby root vegetable typically makes its appearance at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market just before Christmas. Currently, it is available from Gomez VeggieVille, whose members swear by the root. According to Valentina Gomez, it is celery…
Hello my Foodie Friends. Being next door to a movie theatre is perfect for me – since I love so many of the classic movies that can still be readily seen. When you walk into our new location at 33 Railroad Place in Saratoga Springs, you will see a large advertising print of the movie “Moonstruck.” I often think of one of my favorite movie quotes about coffee when I look at the movie poster. Coffee has had a presence…

Farmers’ markets have deep roots in American society, dating back to Native American trading spaces. Markets all but disappeared after World War II, however, as a result of corporate agriculture and the arrival…
Hello my Foodie Friends! One of our family’s favorite food is pizza; especially Paula’s homemade pizza.  Pizza is an excellent all around family food that every person can personalize and enjoy on the day it is cooked, or the following day (Breakfast Pizza?).  It is also a perfect “on the go” food to help with the crazy schedules that we all have. Back in the days before children, pizza was a frequent meal for Paula and me. Our lives were…
Hello my Foodie Friends! Our most relished Christmas treasures come with the decorations, the scents of pine, the sounds of music and jingles, and for many, what happens in the kitchen!

A monk, Nicholas, learned of a man who was broke. Late in the night, Nicholas crept by the man’s home and threw through the window a sock loaded with gold. He did this three times, which helped make Nicholas a saint and let the man support himself and his daughters. We fill stockings today in honor of that generous act. And with Christmas Eve approaching, we invite you to fill them at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market with sweets, treats, and…
