Today, May 28th, is the opening day of the much anticipated Freeport Community Market! Hope to see you throughout the season.
Rain or Shine at 3pm on Friday May 28th the tents will go up transforming the Moose Parking Lot and Discovery Park on the L.L.Bean Campus for the Opening Day of the Freeport Community Market.
Come peruse the market arena for our diversified Maine products. Locally grown, organic and all natural produce, grass-fed meats and farm fresh eggs abound. Choose your own mouthwatering Maine lobster plucked just hours before from our coastal waters. Imagine your patio bedecked with hanging pots of cascading flowers, sweet and savory scented herbs and potted heirloom vegetables.
Specialty desserts, crusty breads, handcrafted cheeses and yogurts; smoked meats, fish and poultry; custom spice blends and Middle Eastern Naan will be there for your selections and meal planning delights.
Toss a salad of fresh greens and plump tomatoes in a bowl turned in “Herbie” wood, garnish with Greek Olive Oil and learn about the Maine family that has brought their product to us. Don a vintage apron while you prepare supper, wash up with old fashioned soap or pick up a sculpted glass tray for easy, yet elegant, entertaining.
Quality Maine crafts add splashes of color and bold textures to everyday living. Select alpaca yarn for that luxurious sweater or add a felted doll to your collection. Organic dog biscuits, catnip candy and cookies for birds make a special treat for the pets in your life.
The Cumberland Farmers Market Association invites you to come and enjoy Maine, the Way Life Really Is, and sample it at our market. Our 2010 pledge to you is to take time for family this summer and, “Leave the Weeding to Us!”
The Freeport Community Market runs weekly on Friday afternoons from 3pm – 7pm, May 28th through Oct 8th.
