Eating Local / Seasonal Foods

What is the true mark of the Spring/Summer season? The outdoor farmers markets that sprout up in cities all over the country. Our local farmers market is heading back outdoors at the end of April, and it could not be more perfect timing!

Although the indoor winter market was great, we could all use some sun in our face and wind in our hair--in addition to fresh, delicious, and locally grown food, of course. Starting on April 28 through late November, the Maine Farmers Market will offer a variety of goodies (everything from meat and honey to fragrant flowers) from over 35 Maine farmers. The food sold is sure to be a healthy and enjoyable beginning, middle, and end of each of your days.

If you are planning to start your spring/summer cleanse, now is the perfect time.  Visit the farmers market on the following days and in the following locations for Spring’s finest inspiration:

Saturdays at Deering Oaks Park in Portland from 7:00am-12:00pm
Wednesdays in Monument Square in Portland from 7:00am to 2:00pm
