For Charles Holub, of Scotch Ridge Trees & Berries, diversity is “the lifeblood of a small farm.” His farm in Duanesburg is a case in point. Scotch Ridge starts its season with the Saratoga Farmers’ Market selling seedlings started in its greenhouses for spring gardens. As spring shifts toward summer, cartons of berries, tomatoes and bouquets of cut flowers become the primary crops. Summer folds into fall and then winter, and as December arrives, trees and handmade wreaths, door swags,…
Hello my Foodie Friends! When I turned 12 years old my father invited me downstairs to educate me on all the tools in his workbench area.  My two brothers and I were never allowed in the workbench area, never! It was off limits to the young barbarians.  When I walked into his inner sanctum, I was nervous.  He spoke to me in an adult soft tone while describing to me how quality tools meant a lot to him. He showed…
Hello my Foodie Friends. With our new location of 33 Railroad Place in Saratoga Springs, next door to the Bow Tie Criterion Cinemas, I find myself reflecting on my favorite movies. Among my choice films is “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” that also has one my favorite movie scenes. The classic scene from the movie is when Maria Portokales receives a bundt cake from the mother of her future son-in-law.  Being cordial yet trying to understand what she is receiving,…

Hello my Foodie Friends! The holiday season is a great time to reminisce and bring up the stories that are told time and time again. Many family traditions have to do with holidays and holiday food and the stories that soon become part of our traditions. These traditions can strengthen family bonds, contribute to your children’s identity and well-being, and create lasting memories. While we sat around the kitchen table, my wife Paula brought up a story about our time…
Photo by Pattie Garrett. As you pull open the doors of the Lincoln Baths Building to enter the Saratoga Farmers’ Market, an extra treat awaits. The market is hosting in addition to its usual array of locally grown and produced fruits and vegetables, cheeses, meats, milks, honey, maple syrup, and specialty goods a set of holiday vendors through December 30. These vendors are setting up shop on the building’s second floor, transforming the space into a market within the market.…
Hello again my Foodie Friends! Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without the telling of the Grandma and the Turkey story.  It was a long time ago when Johnny was 3 and Aubrey was 5 months old when we made the annual trek to Grandma’s house to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner and watch football. To begin; let me explain I am a Giants fan and so is my mother-in-law so watching the Cowboys is not our favorite thing. However, her son is and…
Photo by Pattie Garrett I love wine. I would drink it all day long if common sense didn’t advise otherwise. So I want the glass (or two) of wine I enjoy with dinner to be as good as possible. If it’s local, even better. For these reasons, my first taste of Northern Cross Vineyard’s Lacrosse wine was love at first sip. “It’s got a very distinctive taste,” said Kathleen Weber, as she poured a sample at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market.…
