Good Morning

Welcome too our Independence Day Market located just for today at Bath Iron Works in the North Parking Lot.  Plenty of parking and room for pups (well behaved and leashed as usual) and people. Hours are still 8:30 to 12.

Good news from Dan at Big Barn, our treasurer:

"On July 1st only, Bath Farmers Market is giving $3 worth of market tokens
to the first seventeen BIW employees who show their BIW ID at the market
information booth. This is to support the BIW Fit for Life program and to
show  our appreciation to BIW for letting us use their parking lot for the Heritage  Days market."

We have so many choices for your holiday meals. Stock up on family favorites, or try something new on the grill or inthe salad bowl.  Start celebrating with luscious breakfast options-make it special with fresh croissants, or fruit filled coffee cakes, chewy bagels , muffins of every description, flavorful scones, and of course fresh donuts.

 We wish you a happy holiday.  It's  nice  to reflect on the principles of independence, liberty and justice for all. I still believe, that despite the many challenges we face as a nation, it is good to strive and aim for the rights of you and your neighbor to disagree and still enjoy, respect and befriend one another. One of the best ways to do that is with food.  And so, bon appetit!
