Farmers’ Markets

I’m in a foul mood, and I just whined for about four paragraphs and then I removed it because you don’t really need to hear that, right?  So, instead, just take a look at this veritable smorgasbord of local farmers’ markets.   We’ve all heard, I think, about Troy & Downtown Schenectady & the Crossings, but anyone particularly enjoy any of the smaller ones?
