This tender tasty Smoked Chicken from Mainely Poultry makes a great salad or sandwich, or tear it into a casserole or stir fry for a pleasant change. Occasionally they have smoked turkey and chicken cuts too.

Good Morning,

March is here, bringing the first tangible sign of Spring, due Sunday the 20. Two short weeks from now. Yes, Goranson Farm is making Maple Syrup; it arrived last weekend, glossy, golden brown, and very delicious. Worth standing in line for to be sure. And this is our last month in the Freight Shed, we move to Waterfront Park April 2.

Our farmers are busy with seeds and shoots and wondering just when winter will disappear. They work hard all winter long, gauging temps and deciding on crops and weather watching, covering baby sprouts, keeping storage crops dry and safe; no life for the uncommitted! You can feel the dedication and love in every crisp bite. Our bakers, preservers and cheesemakers, fish, meat, and poultry purveyors work constantly as well, predicting (or not) weather and demand, planning transport and delivery, selecting equipment, and ensuring safe, healthy production. I feel so lucky to have excellent food from folks I trust to respect the life and process of getting it here. And it's fun!

For those who missed last week, this update from Market Management: Following recent loosening of pandemic restrictions by the City of Bath, our vendors voted ... to make masks optional and end restrictions on number of folks inside the Freight Shed. The restrictions on vocals by our musicians are also done. If you have any questions about this, please talk to Robin Chase, our Market Manager at Chase Farm Bakery.

Meadowcroft is out til mid-late March, but Nanne is available to you via telephone and internet, listed below. Stewart & Reid will be out for a few more weeks: the total kitchen remodel is going well, just a little longer than planned.

Take care.
