Although most commonly associated with Mediterranean cuisine, this flavorful member of the Allium family also plays a huge role in Asian, Middle-Eastern, Latin American and, of course, American cuisine.

Looking for a way to bring more garlic into your life? (There's always room for more!) Check out what Cattaraugus County has to offer in late summer and autumn: Area Farmers’ Markets May - October The nutrient rich soil of the Enchanted Mountains is ideal for growing many different kinds of fruits and vegetables, including garlic. Looking for some fresh, locally grown garlic? Five area markets sell to the public during the growing season: REAP Olean, Southern Tier (Olean), Salamanca, South Dayton, and Franklinville. For dates, times, and locations, check out our Farmers' Market page. Community-Supported Agriculture Canticle Farm & Native Offerings Farm Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms ask customers (shareholders) to pay up front for a season-long supply of vegetables, fruit, and/or meat that varies weekly. Not only is this is a great way to support local agriculture, it also gives shareholders many opportunities to learn—they can help plant, maintain, and harvest crops alongside their farmers (above).
