Winter Farm to Fork Travel Ideas

Dear EscapeMakers — Winter’s chill has finally made it to the Finger Lakes region, but Ithaca, NY is proud to offer a wealth of memorable food and farming-related events even in the colder months.

Ithaca is never short on festivals, and winter is no exception – this year’s Ice Festival on December 9th will feature a Chowder Cook-off, and the weird and wonderful Rutabaga Curl at the Ithaca Farmers Market on December 16th is a party in itself. Enjoy a country-style setting with big-city amenities at one of the Farm-to-Fork lodging partners to truly complete your stay!

Make plans to visit Ithaca later in the month to shop from local farmers at the Press Bay Alley Holiday Farmers Market on December 21st – or give the gift of an unforgettable learning experience with a breadmaking class at the renowned Wide Awake Bakery or a special Farmscape Yoga class!
