The end of summer and transition to fall brings with it many fun farm and food events, including fairs, classes, farm tours and fine food affairs.
August is a plentiful time at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market, with summer produce at its peak: seasonal crops such as corn, tomatoes, beans, peppers, melons, stone fruit (peaches, plums, etc.) add their colors to a rainbow of other fresh items, and it’s easy to pick up complementary foods and beverages: wine and cheese, fresh meat or fish for the grill, eggs and bacon for a full country breakfast, and baked goods to round out any meal.
