This Week at the Market – January 22, 2017

Good food grows all winter on our farms, including Fellenz Family Farm, thanks to plastic-covered high tunnels that keep cold out and growing things in. Join us at Brighton Farmers’ Market this Sunday to see what our local farmers area growing in January in upstate New York.
