Though the snow still lingers on the fields and the daylight is not yet long enough to grow crops again we are busy planning for the summer. We have been accepted to the Northeast Harbor Farmers Market on MDI and are planning on selling at a small market in Lincolnville. These markets will allow us to expand our reach significantly, essentially allowing us to market our products throughout Mid Coast Maine.
At Northeast Harbor you will be able to find us every Thursday down by the Marina selling a variety of cut flowers, particularly sweet peas. We plan to dedicate our small 14×20 hoop house entirely to flowers for this purpose. The market typically runs from the last week in June until the end of August, while the island is flush with tourists. If you venture over to MDI feel free to stop by and say hello.
In Lincolnville we will be selling a variety of vegetables at a relatively new, small market right on Route 1. More details about this market will follow, but we are very excited about the possibilities.
