With people slowly paying more attention to what and how they eat, farmers markets have sprung up all over. In Maine, there’s nothing new about that, and during the short growing season the markets and the folks who work so hard growing and preparing products are well supported.
Saturday is one of Camden’s market days and under a brilliant blue sky, today it was packed. The market is not a huge one, but you can find whatever you desire.
My favorites? The sausage guy is one. His homemade sausages are a gourmands delight, perfect for an appetizer plate.
And this cute gal sells great breakfast sausage among other kinds
made from what I think must be happy pigs!
The cheese guy always tempts my taste buds,
and the produce is irresistible,
and today there were even hints that fall is right around the corner.
Want something other than edibles? Well, that’s there, too. I love these baskets
and delight in watching her busy hands at work.
In addition to local Maine farmers markets, it is not unusual to find roadside stands where items are sold on the honor system. Just this week I bought flowers and produce
and delicious pies. Now, you can’t beat that. Any time you see a market or a farm stand, I urge you to stop. You’ll not only find special treats, you’ll be supporting those who are working so hard to make a living.
