Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News

Portland Press Herald - 4/2/2009.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Today marked the official start of the weekly farmers' market in Monument Square. Dan from Sumner Valley Farm and Mike from Uncle's Farm Stand were there as the vanguard of the 30+ farmers who will fill the square by the time summer rolls around. Look for these guys (and hopefully others) next Wednesday from about 8:30 am until about 1:30 pm. Once the weather improves, the official market hours of 7 am-2 pm kick in.
