Opening day at the Bellevue Farmer’s Market

Today was opening day at the Bellevue Farmer’s Market thanks to the dedicated work of a core group of volunteers.

Hint: the workers are wearing green

The market features several vegetable, prepared food, and meat vendors. I was certainly pleased to see some fresh strawberries and freshly prepared collards to warm up on this dreary day.

There was live music and balloons for the kids, too. The opening ceremony featured the NY State Commissioner of Agriculture and Markets. He’s the self-professed overdressed farmer cutting the green ribbon.

It’s the third year of the market, and they started out great today. I picked up some Swiss Chard, fresh strawberries,  and bacon while I gorged myself on some delicious soul food and Italian delicacies.

It’s a great place to get food in Schenectady!
