Winter Farmer Markets In The News

The Portland Press Herald put out a great article in today's food section of the paper exclaiming Winter Farmer markets as Hot Hot Hot!

And they are!  I am part of the winter market movement, selling my soap at 2 markets per week.  Market members from the spring, summer and fall moved indoors for the colder winter months to continue to offer fresh eggs, local meats, seasonal produce, baked goods, seafood, crafts and much more to customers year 'round.   Of my 2 markets, one is inside a greenhouse.  We are out of the wind, rain and snow, but we do not have any heat.  This market is held during peak sunshine warming time, 10:00-1:00 and can get nice and toasty when the sun is shining.  The other market I sell with is in an old mill.  This mill is bustling with lots of local businesses, an antique shop, a few restaurants and even a flea market.  The space was available and so, we rented it!

And here are a few pictures of the Brunswick Winter Market from the article.  I am one of the vendors at the Brunswick Market and boy, it is a great one! I also sell at the Cumberland Farmers Market Association market located in Falmouth on Wednesdays. Stop by if you can.
