Yay! It’s officially Summer and our local Farmers’ Markets are teeming with wonderful things. Farmers’ Markets are an integral part of the urban/farm linkage and have continued to rise in popularity, mostly due to the growing consumer interest in obtaining fresh products directly from the farm.
The MidCoast region is filled with farms and farmers, and depending on the time of the year, you’ll find beef, pork, lamb, poultry, seafood, cheeses, milk, honey, maple syrup, baked goods, vegetables, apples, berries and more at MidCoast farmers’ markets.
Asparagus, peas, fresh greens, goat cheese, farm eggs, fresh Maine seafood… visit one of these MidCoast Farmers’ Markets and see what tasty locally produced foods this week provides:
