One of the Ithaca Farmers Market’s core vendors for over forty years, Littletree Orchards is based in Newfield, just south of Ithaca. They offer apples, cider, donuts, and other fruits and vegetables at their farmers market stall throughout the year, as well as u-pick opportunities and fun events at their farm.

The farmers market folks say there will be several varieties of apples available for tasting, and you can learn about the differences from the experts! The weekly Thursday night market in Ithaca started this summer down at the Steamboat Landing pavilion on the waterfront, and it offers not only farm vendors, but prepared food for dinner, beer and wine, activities for kids, and live music. This week’s musical performer is the Local Farmers Union.
