Good morning! Aside from the beautiful scenery of Maine, the quaint towns, and of course all of the sea food one of my favorite things we did was visit the farmers market.
We frequent one where we live but this one felt different. Probably because this market which was held in Bath sold everything from produce, to flowers, and artisan bread,
fresh cheese, soups, seafood,
eggs, meats, milk and more!
Every booth held something delectable and beautiful!
There were even things that I had never seen, different colored beans, interesting squash
and mushrooms of so many varieties.
Have you ever head of the “hen of the woods” mushroom? Me neither.
Aside from the interesting foods, and beautiful flowers, the people there were so friendly and knowledgeable. Each person that we met was eager to share their produce or cheese and to explain how to grow it or to prepare it.
If I ate mushrooms I now know how to grow many varieties in my own garden thanks to the explanations of not only the proprietor of this booth but to her customers.
Although I love my own farmers market I do wish it had more of these beautiful products, and quite honestly the cheese monger and the doughnut maker.
Tell me, do you go to the Farmer’s Market in your town? Is there anything special that you go for or do you simply go to take advantage of the fresh local produce?
I hope that you have a beautiful Fall day!
