Busy Busy, Summer Is Here!

Summer is here and I am super busy!  3 markets a week now means that the other 2 days I need to cram in soap making, soap packaging, ordering supplies, billing, cleaning, scheduling, shipping and more!  I try to do it all during the week so I have weekends free to spend time with my husband.  

The NEW South Portland Maine Mall Farmers Market opened on Tuesday.  It was a bit of a slow start with 6 of us vendors brave enough to stick out necks out and give it a try.   Plenty of room for more vendors and there are several lined up to start with in the next couple of weeks (licensing needs to be approved by the city).  The weather didn't cooperate and we had a very grey day with sprinkled and wind mixed it.  It was very chilly too!  I am hoping for a better market this week!  They are doing a great job to support the market and get the word out via advertising and promotions.  
Here is the link to an article in the local paper, The Forecaster:  

Soaps at market!

Thursday I am selling at The Yarmouth Farmers Market and that has been getting better and better each week!  Lots of wonderful vendors and the space is great for families to come and enjoy the market.  Come on down!

Below is Winter Hill Farm from Freeport selling in Yarmouth- they sell cheese!

And the Freeport Farmers Market opened on to a great start!  Come on down every Friday 1-5 on the L.L.Bean Campus and see me and other great vendors!  There is a blog with pictures from the opening day:

This is Pretzel Logic selling gourmet pretzels in Freeport, yum!

Oh I know how hard that is doing 2 or 3 markets a week and trying to keep up with the marketing, packaging and making soap. Well done, I hope the weather gets better for you, if its any consolation its horrible in UK too!!

Congrats on all the markets you are working at, that's amazing news! Your soaps look great at the market, and I totally get what you mean about the weather. In the Pacific Northwest the weather changes daily!
