It's Ithaca Artist Market time of year. 68  artists, 15 arts organizations, food, chocolate, drinks, live music, raffles and boat tours- what could be finer on a summer Friday. I'll be there at my usual Ithaca Farmers Market booth, #3.

And of course I continue to carve every summer Saturday at Farmers Market.
