Ithaca Farmer’s Market at the Steamboat Landing in Ithaca, NY is one of my favorite places I’ve went to so far. They have a huge selection of produce and flowers, as well as live entertainment, but I most enjoy their huge amount of food from different cultures. I love trying new food from around the world, so this is a wonderful place for me. We decided to try a Cuban sandwich with rice and plantains from La Paladar and later got a Cambodian fried vegetable ball from Khmer Angkor. The whole meal was delicious.
The Sterling Renaissance Festival is the first renaissance fair I have ever visited. I’ve always wanted to go to one though, and it lived up to my expectations. The shows were fun, although since it was so hot, we only went to two. We saw the water wenches, which Ron really wanted to see, and then went to the mud pits. I think Ron wanted us to get muddy, since he sat us up front, but I noticed the mud on the seats, so that trick didn’t work for me. We also listened to some Celtic music, which was really nice, and ate at a restaurant whose food was OK, but the chips were a little hard. Next time I go, I think I’m going to try to get some more authentic food and drink, so I’m going to try some mead.
