The tiny place is packed with an excellent selection of food and specialty items. There are always beautiful fresh cut flowers, local food anytime it's in season (your weekday alternative to the farmer's market - where else are you going to get fresh currants?), a wall of inexpensive bulk spices, a great selection of local, organic, and just plain interesting cookbooks, fresh goodies from local bakeries, and a huge collection of hard-to-find candies, sauces, dressings, and more.

Tucked away in a somewhat random location, this is one of Ithaca's best places to shop for food (and I say this knowing that two Greenstar locations are just on the other side of town). Ludgate is excellent as a corner grocery (I did most of my shopping there when I lived nearby) and has a fabulous array of things you never thought you'd find in a gravel-floored farmstand. Also! They are open 9am-9pm every day, including weekends (info current as of spring 2008).

This is a store where you can find all kinds of organic, vegetarian and unique foods. Although it is expensive it is locally owned and the staff is wonderful.

Ludgate Farms is a store you could only find in Ithaca. The floor is dirt (well, gravel over dirt). The plastic roof is held up by air pressure. And the merchandise, other than the produce, does get a bit dusty. But they've got decent to good produce, even in the off-season. What makes them "very good" is their excellent selection of specialty items (teas, dried fruits, breads, cookies, candy, condiments, etc.). And they're open 365 days a year. If you live here, and you drive, you'll visit them at least once in your first year -- just about unavoidable.

PROS: Excellent selction of specialty food items, open 365 days/year
CONS: Loose the dirt floor and the resulting dust, PLEASE!
