Kennebec Journal - 3/25/2009.
By George Smith – The large cucumber is held up rather tentatively for the approval of Dad at my vegetable stand in front of Wilson's Dollar Stores on Winthrop's Main Street. Dad worked at Wilson's. The photo, now 48 years old, sits on my bookshelf.
Reinventing the farmers' market
Portland Press Herald - 3/25/2009.
By Meredith Goad – Farmers Fare is similar to more traditional farmers' markets in that there will definitely be a focus on food: The produce, dairy and other products sold in the market and cafe will be supplied by local farmers. But Farmers Fare is also about building connections with neighbors through traditional activities from bonfires to block parties. There will be a playground, tables with chess and checker sets, and a walking path around the quarter-mile perimeter for moms with strollers. Children will be allowed to help out in the gardens.
Eat local challenge
Bangor Daily News - 3/25/2009.
By Emily Burnham – Belfast will hold its fourth annual Local Food Celebration, an event designed to highlight some of the wonderful local farms, restaurants and other food suppliers in the midcoast, at 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 1, at the Unitarian Universalist Church on Miller Street.
