The Maine Observer has published a piece about the Portland Farmers Market.
Located directly across from the Portland Public Library and surrounded by the high-standing buildings of corporate offices, the market is hard to miss. You know you’ve entered it when you see the reusable shopping bags decorated with cheerful images of trees and animals. Stamped messages like “I am a plastic bottle” or “I am earth-wise” gloss over the underlying goal of buying and grown locally: to personally meet your food’s producer and to pollute less.
The weekend market is taking place this morning in Deering-Oaks Park and will be there until noon. For more information on the market, visit their website.
