Meet Your Farmers & Fishermen, March 1–3

Meet Your Farmers & Fishermen: A Celebration of Community Supported Agriculture and Fisheries
Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association
March 1 – 3, 2013

These events are part celebration and part education, as local farmers, fishermen and other food producers tell community members how to enjoy local foods and support local businesses in a meaningful way. Each location will have plenty of local flavor, whether live local music, tastings featuring local foods, sales of food and other products from local farms and businesses, film screenings and more.
