All things bright and beautiful here
Always check the boards at our cheesemakers: age, type of milk, process, season, all affect availability. Here, last weeks offerings at Fuzzy Udder.
Bath Farmers Market April 24, 2021
Good Morning,

Hoping you were able to pause on Wednesday and consider Earth Day in all it's dimensions. Buying local healthy food really does help on so many levels. It's nice to shop and feel you've made a contribution to the health of the planet. And it does taste so very good.

If you have a vegetable garden remember to check out the seedlings that our farmers offer. Plenty of options for staples like tomatoes and lettuce, as well as herbs , and summer highlights like eggplant and watermelon. Many of us buy seedlings to stock our winter freezers with summer favorites. Limited space? try container gardening!

Remember that buying a CSA meets your needs and supports our farmers. Tarbox and Goranson Farms both have summer share programs. Dharma Farm does as well at www.dharmafarm/csa;we hope to see them soon. New Roots also offers many options at https://newrootscooperativefarm.com/our-csa. They'll be here in a few weeks.

My apologies. Someone sent a newsletter signup request recently that mysteriously disappeared from my email (and any other place it might have migrated to) before I could process it. If your name begins with L and you are looking for a response, please resend. This happens with my server from time to time.

Take care

Goranson has several herbal micros right now, and these lovely edible flowers brighten any salad

From our vendors -Sales, Seasonal, Specials

Borealis has muffins tucked away most weeks-not on display. Last weeks Cranberry orange walnut was dynamic, not too much sugar, the fruit flavor holds its own and it's very satisfying. Just ask.


Kidding Season is almost done, but at Appleton and Fuzzy Udder Creameries its been a busy and demanding time. And they still have energy to make lovely cheese and haul it in to us each week.
Try some of Appletons' fresh rolled logs coated with lime-- pepper or chipotle pepper. wonderful in salads or on a bagel.
Fuzzy Udders' creamy spreading cheeses, plain or flavored (check that mushroom) transform burgers, omelets

Goranson will be bringing in leaf lettuce and maybe a little swiss chard this week. Look for young kales and maybe some
spinach at Tarbox
Mana Medicinals offers a range of supports for all your systems
Cast winter from your whole self. Pick up a bottle of Destress, to tackle stress, sleeplessness, anxiety, and one of Vitality, offering cognitive support and generally sharpening you up. Both at Mana Medicinals, with Anna right there to advise you.

Amy has some nice jars of Bread and Butter Pickles. Some dills as well. She also offers pickled garlic, beets or mushrooms. Great sides for a light lunch or a picnic basket.

Feed your dog well at Mainely Poultry. They sell roughly 1000 pounds a week of their raw grind to area Pet supply stores. It's frozen in a cooler here, so ask for it and get instructions on feeding
Real bagels with a variety of crunchy seeds and authentic bialys set a high standard at Hootenanny
Robin at Chase Farm debuted some lush Cannoli last week. made with her own fresh ricotta, dusted with oreos or pistachios, thcalled my name. Order online for
party portions

Pemaquid is well stocked right now with 2 kinds of Haddock chowder, and Lobster Bisque. Or pick up some of their fresh fish stock and compose your own soupy ode to the sea.

At Alchimia fresh ravioli offer comfort and classic taste. Stuffed with creamy ricotta, butternut squash or spinach, they are perfect with just some butter (get the good stuff at Chase Farm) and cheese ( hie thee to Hahns End for some gratable Rigged Island). but they also mingle well with light vegetable sauces.
