Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Brunswick Farmers’ Market: the root of your locavore dinner
The Bowdoin Orient - 11/22/2013.
By Frannie Gurzenda and Emily Stewart - Every Tuesday and Thursday, fifteen local food vendors set up stalls along the Mall in downtown Brunswick to sell their day’s bounty. From seasonal produce to oven-fresh baked goods, the Brunswick Farmers’ Market provides a wide variety of local Maine fare. Every week, rain or shine, food enthusiasts come flooding to sample homegrown staples such as garlic-marinated goat cheese curds and hearty Sumatra roast coffee.
