One of the themes of this blog is ‘eat seasonal, local food’. In Maine, this is not an elitist idea but something most of the people of Maine pursue, and the local farmers, farm land and farmers markets are plentiful. Afterall, Maine does feel sometimes like stuck in the 50s, in a good way. In the summer (i.e. now) I get most of my produce from the Farmers Market and the rest from my garden. There are always the same farmers, and familiar banter develops over the years. Here is one of my favorite farmers, Mark. His arugula and mesclun salad mix is divine; it is crunch fresh and does not wilt for over a week. …… and here is where it really comes from.
Farm to table.
