Good mornng
December is here! and with it the beginnings of a Maine winter-cold and crisp, cloudy and then bright, woodstoves going and the last bulbs (hopefully) in. Nature has it's own late fall palette of grays and browns, sparked with reds and the occasional green to enjoy on your walks and hikes.

And here at the Freight Shed we are cozy and full of fabulous food to make every meal special-cause it should be!

Correction: The email address for Anna Christina at Mana Medicinals is actually www.annamana.com. check it out.

All our vendors should be back this week. lots of great winter veggies but still lots of greens-bless the farmers!. Cheese abounds and holidays are a great time to sample variety. Our bakers are on a spree of creativity so choose carefully and indulge with satisfaction. Lots of bright and beautiful preserved food, their flavors and colors bring sun to the grayest days. And our ready to go soups and casseroles and preserves are lifesavers in these busy winter days.

Visit Stephany at hHawthorne and Thistle and admire her homedyed and spun wool from her lovely Jacob sheet-check her out on facebook-these animals have lots of character and personality. She also has an alpaca, and thus some skeins of soft warm wool from him. Reasonably priced and so special!

  From our vendors-specials, s ales, seasonal

Beryl should be bringing back the walnut rosemay fig muffins she piloted a few weeks ago-enjoy their nutty fragrant flavor and their just right crumbly texture. Buy 2-you'll want more!

At Hahns End Debbie continues to offer aged City of Ships and her firm but just a little creamy Market Cheese-both of which are local favorites.

Look for blanket bargains at Meadowcroft, now that the flannel sheets are on the bed. Or enjoy a seacolored sweater in subtle shades of Maine, maybe a scarf & hat for stylish strolls..

Beryl has a winner-big time- in these muffins
Pemaquid Lobster & Seafood is now taking orders for all fish and shellfish needs for the holidays. Large or special orders must be placed in advance at the market or by calling 207-350-054 by December 19th.

Goranson is offering prorated winter shares, starting now through April, so if you missed sign up, the time is now. Don't miss their farm raised and dried black beans-quick cooking and versatile.

Tarbox is full of greens-still. My money is on their splendid selection of cabbages-savoy-regular, that tasty triangle one (forgot the name) maybe some napa left, and radicchio...it's a cousin. All versatile in side salads or veggie stirfries, or just quickly roasted on their own. ...

At Gracies Garden, Mark is showing off his newest flavor, made wth that gorgeous watermelon radish. Fresh and savory, it adds a burst of brightness as a side for winter stews and chowders.

Kelly Brothers Beef is offering Crown Roasts for the holidays-make an old fashioned holiday feast with this luxurious cut as the star.

Springdales' Queso Tencho is good for melting, grating, shredding on burritos and tacos, or just plain snacking, I am told.
