Why is it that the only time the public market is open is when the majority of the public is at work??

Mara, it's only an uneducated guess, but I think it's because the operators of the Public Market wish to cater to the 'smart' people - That would, of course, be the people that work "B" and "C" shifts.

Now, a question to you - Can you guess which shift I preferred? :)

Take a drive over to Geneseo. The Farmer's Market there is open on Thursdays from 3:00 PM - 6:30 PM, specifically so people can stop by after work. Once it's in season, be sure to get some sweet corn from Simpson Farms. Other than DeGroff Farms in Castile, it's probably the best around.
