The First Burnap’s of the Season

Burnap’s Farm Market is a produce market and more on Maple Avenue a mile or so north of the town of Sodus. Always a source of fresh fruits and vegetables for us, Burnap’s Farm Market opened for the season just before Memorial Day weekend. We have missed going there all winter and spring, and welcomed the summer opening!

burnapsLast week, we did the first Burnap’s of the season. How does one “do a Burnap’s”? At the Carriage House Inn, there are two ways. The first way to “do a Burnap’s ” is by shopping for fresh produce for the Inn, as well as other items that make breakfasts for our guests a little bit more special. One favorite is the Black Bean Salsa locally made, which compliments such meals as our Sausage Egg Casserole, or yummy Cheese Strada.

The second way to “do a Burnap’s” is by enjoying lunch at the Garden Cafe, which is exactly what we did last Thursday. The menu at the Garden Cafe is full of great hot and cold sandwiches, as well as fresh salads and healthy pizzas. We both chose the option to “Create Your Own Cafe Lunch”, which includes a soup or half salad, a half sandwich, a bottled cold drink and finishes with an ice cream cone. Claudine had the BLT on toasted oatmeal bread, and Jerry had the Club on a French roll. They were great bargains at $9.99 each, and definitely a challenge to finish!!

As good as the food is, the atmosphere of outside dining amidst the fruit fields and orchards is superb. A quiet and relaxing setting, there is truly nothing like it for lunch or a snack on a sunny summer day. The new outdoor deck provides plenty of room to enjoy the surroundings. The first Burnap’s of the season was definitely a successful one.

At the Carriage House Inn, we have had a busy start to the season, too, at our Sodus Point Bed and Breakfast. The weather has been great, and charter fishing at the Point is starting to hit it’s stride. The Sodus Bay Lighthouse and Museum is open and hosting many visitors climbing the 55 steps to the top.

We hope we will see you soon in Sodus Point; when you are in town, stop by the Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast, where you always “feel like home”
