Malone, NY, Mar 08, 2011 — The state agriculture department says New York has 75 winter farmers markets that run December through March. None of those, however, are in the North Country. According to Cornell Cooperative Extension's Bernadette Logozar, the markets in Lake Placid and Watertown run the latest, and they peter out in December.
Logozar is Extension's local foods specialist in the North Country. She told David Sommerstein the region's extra cold weather makes things like year-round greenhouses risky.
