Winter Farmers Market
NEW! - Casco Bay Soap Co. is very excited to be selling our soaps during the winter months at an indoor Farmers Market in the barn at Granite Farms in Brunswick.
Take a beautiful drive into farm country and visit an old dairy farm. The big white barn shows evidence of when it was once used as a working dairy farm. I even have chatted with a few old timers who have come to visit us as customers, that use to work on the farm. Market vendors are friendly and happy to chat with you. Often free coffee or hot mulled cider is offered to sip while visiting with your neighbor, sampling the baked goods or browsing the variety of items for sale. Plenty of parking.
The market is open from 9-12, Saturdays, at 93 Casco Road in Brunswick with several vendors from the Brunswick Crystal Spring Farmer Market and a handful of vendors from the Cumberland Farmers Market Association. This winter market offers eggs, poultry products, pies, whole birds, candles, canvas bags, goat meat, herbs, vegetables, baked goods, maple syrup, honey, apples, soap, Gluten Free baked goods, flowers and wreaths.
What a great opportunity for local farmers to sell during the winter months. I personally have purchased some fantastic offerings. Local eggs from Em's Eggs, with more than a few over sized eggs in each carton, I felt I was getting more than my moneys worth. Chewy macaroon, so good I was going to share with my husband, but they didn't make it home. Gluten Free chocolate chips cookies, I didn't even miss the gluten! My mom & dad stopped by one Saturday and my mom (a true Yankee always bragging about a bargain) was thrilled to walk away with 2 tomatoes for $1.00!
Any vendors interested in joining this market can call Debbie Cupo of Granite Farm at 729-5275.
I hope to see you there.
