To the Markets We Shall Go!

I want to make you aware of two more markets opening this month. The greatest thing is that both these markets are opening for their first season this year! Make sure you get out and support these two towns new markets. It's so nice to see the local movement spreading and people going back to the local land and their neighbors for their food and well being.

The North Berwick (Maine) Farmers' Market is opening on Friday, June 12th. This market, located at the North Berwick Town Hall Parking Lot, will be open Friday's from 3 - 6 PM, rain or shine!

Our market is an effort by community members who are interested in supporting local agriculture, commerce, and community connection. It's a great way to get out and enjoy some fresh air, visit with your neighbors, and treat yourself to the freshest most flavorful products, only a few hours from the garden or kitchen.
The great thing about this market is the difference in farmers from the NH farmers' market circuit. How nice we can reap the benefits of living so close to a neighboring state. A few of the farmers selling at the North Berwick Farmers' Market include:
  • Berry Best Farm, Lebanon, Me: fresh picked fruit and jams
  • Borealis Breads, Wells, Me: whole grain breads, pastries, cookies
  • Buddha's Burning Buns, S. Berwick, Me: cookies, granola and dry mixes
  • Catch a Piece of Maine, Portland, Me: lobster rolls, salad and cooked lobster meat
  • Cricket Corner Soapworks, NH, herbal soaps and salves
  • Dan's Delectable Bee Barf, S. Berwick, Me: honey and fruit
  • Farmfield Greenhouses, Lebanon, Me: annuals, perennials and hanging baskets
  • Juniper Ledge Farm, S. Berwick, Me: organic veggies, herbs and some pastries
  • Kelly Orchards, Acton, Me: apples, cider, peaches, berries, fall squashes and pumpkins
  • Little Cottage Baking Co., Sanford, Me: fudge, peanut brittle, and sweets
  • Outlaw Farm, Rochester, NH: free-range Hereford beef
  • Spiller Farm, Wells, Me: wide variety of veggies and fruits
  • The Coop Co-op, N. Berwick, Me: free-range eggs
  • Tic-Toc Farm, N. Berwick, Me: variety of veggies, fruits and flowers
  • Zach's Farm, York, Me: sweet corn, melons, veggies, and flowers
The next market, the Rye Farmers' Market, will open its doors each Wednesday starting June 24th from 2 - 5:30 PM in the town parking lot on the west side of the Rye Congregational Church. Sara Zoe at Seacoast Eat Local alerted us to the tasty little thing known as CHEESE! that will be available at this market. Yes, Silvery Moon Creamery will be selling their yummy local treats at the Rye market.
The aim is to provide one stop shopping of local fare from vendors which include Applecrest Farms (vegetables and fruits), White Heron Tea (teas and prepared foods), Joy Lane Farm (goat cheese and goat milk soap), Skip's Cider Donuts, Sea View Farm (bison and chicken), Yellow House Farm (chicken, duck, guinea fowl) as well as many Rye growers who are forming coops to sell vegetables, herbs, eggs and baked goods.
So be sure to get out this month and show your support of these two towns' efforts to encourage eating and living locally!
