Food Shopping

Supported by a thriving organic and sustainable farm community, Ithaca is a town of foodies- even the supermarkets feature extensive international products and locally-grown produce. During the growing season, the local farmer’s market sells produce and grass-fed meats. Ithaca has plenty of grocery stores that will keep you happy and healthy!
