Niagara’s Farmers Markets

Niagara’s Farmers Markets
There has been a lot said recently about the benefits of eating and buying local, and when you are living in or visiting Niagara, eating locally is pretty easy to do! Almost all of the municipalities in Niagara have their own weekly farmer’s market, and these are the places you’ll be able to get some great locally grown fruits and vegetables. Most of Niagara’s Farmer’s Markets have been around since the early 1900’s, and are an extremely ingrained and important part...

Vegas Farmers Markets Still Going Strong

Flowers Abound at Farmers Markets Around the World For those smart enough to have planted their own fruit trees and gardens, summer fruits and vegetables are still ripening on trees and vines.

Legendary eating at the Dillard House

I had heard a lot about the Dillard House before I went. The food is delicious, the service is great, it’s just something you have to do in the mountains – so my expectations were high. There is a long line at traditional meal times, but it moves quickly. (You can admire the view from the porch rocking chairs while you wait.) When we were seated, the server promptly came and took our drink orders. The menu on the wall outside had listed fried chicken, steak and gravy, sliced country ham...
