Local, local, local! Our farmers' work hard to bring the community healthy, sustainable, and safe food. August 12th will mean that harvests for many crops are in full swing with abundance to enjoy. Come and meet your farmer to find out how they grow the food they offer to us year after year. Our food vendors will be using ingredients from local farms and will be cooking up a storm for you. Cross your fingers, though, for sunshine!
From the Alan Day Community Garden in Norway to Anna Sysko's farm in Newry, our farmers and cooks make it all happen. Come and enjoy! Check out what our local food system looks like on the Maine Food Atlas.
There will be a lot going on at Fare Share Co-op for the Festival. Fare Share is our community's local food system hub and we have a lot to be thankful for having a local food co-op in our area since 1978. Visit them during the Festival!
