Local is in, organic is growing in popularity and farmers’ markets are sprouting up in towns and villages across the region to handle increased demand. Savvy gardeners get an early start on the growing season by planting cool-weather favorites such as peas, beans, leafy greens and root vegetables. By fall, vendor booths are overflowing with freshly harvested tomatoes, zucchini, squash, corn, pumpkins and bushels of potatoes.

With the exception of a few year-round venues, most farmers’ markets take place during the peak harvest months of June through September.

Delicious While the area has always been know for its food, ethnic diversity has contributed to an increase of mouth watering dining options.

The backdrops for local dining are nearly as varied. Enjoy lakeside alfresco dining , a mountaintop breakfast at sunrise, or ďŹ ne dining in a 150- year-old castle. Gather the family for a southern-style BBQ or go organic with locally grown food.

Khmer Summer Rolls, Spanakopita, Chicken Riggies, Pho, Tiramisu, Jaeger Schnitzel, Golabki, Stuffed Kousa, Masco-Bara.... all are readily available throughout the region and easier to digest than pronounce!

Perhaps our motto should be,

“We’ve got a FEST for that.” Here in New York, just about anything is cause for celebration. From flowers and music to chocolate and riggies, there’s practically a festival lurking around every village corner. If you love singing and dancing, ethnic foods and meeting new people, pack up your bodhran, tune up your zither and make plans to join in the fun.

In their words, the mission of the Boxing Hall of Fame is “to honor and preserve boxing’s rich heritage, chronicle the achievements of those who excelled and provide an educational experience for visitors.” Born out a love for the sport and the desire to honor two hometown boys who became world boxing champions, Canastota residents dedicated the Hall in 1989 and have since hosted an annual induction ceremony each spring to honor the sport’s legends.

Distance running is the great equalizer. It’s enjoyed by young, old, armatures and professionals, requires minimal financial investment, and can be enjoyed in nearly any season of life. The National Distance Running Hall of Fame was established in 1998 to celebrate the sport’s greatest moments and legends. Awards, photos, memorabilia line the walls and bring due recognition to the outstanding athletes who continually push the limits of this demanding sport.

HALL OF FAME BASEBALLHALL.ORG

The National Baseball Hall of Fame is almost as legendary as the inductees it honors. It’s actually three entities in one - a museum, the Hall of Fame, and a research library. Established in 1939, the hall houses over 38,000 three-dimensional artifacts and offers a plethora of exhibits and interactive programs all designed to honor America’s favorite game and it’s great players.

Historic Roots The Erie Canal, renamed the New York State Canal System, is among America’s most treasured historical resources and is enjoying a resurgence of development. The Canal System is a navigable 524-mile inland waterway that crosses upstate NY and features 57 locks and 20 lift bridges. The waterway links the Great Lakes with the Hudson River and five Canadian waterways.

With historic sites and quaint Canal-side towns dotting its shorelines and corresponding towpaths, visitors of all ages can navigate the waters by boat, bike and hike on over 260 miles of Canalway Trails, and take advantage of the calm waters for a relaxing day of fishing. Visit www.canals.ny.gov for useful information to plan your visit.
