Support Local Farmers and Fishermen
Attend a Community Supported Food Fair
Sunday, February 8th, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m., free admission
Learn how to support your community’s farmers and fishermen by purchasing shares of their harvest
Enjoy HEALTHY, LOCAL, FRESH FOOD!
Slow Food Portland, The Maine Council of Churches, and the Main Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association is sponsoring eleven Community Supported Food fairs. We thank the nine churches that are hosting these events and encourage everyone to attend a local fair.
These fairs provide a great opportunity to purchase shares of local farmers’ harvest–last year many farms sold out during the winter! This year we are pleased to support local fishermen who will also be attending many of the fairs giving attendees a chance to buy shares of their catch.
The fairs will be at the following locations:
Belfast Unitarian Universalist Church of Belfast, 37 Miller St
Brunswick St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 27 Pleasant St
Canaan Union Church, Rt.2
Ellsworth Unitarian Universalist Church of Ellsworth 121 Bucksport Rd
Farmington Fairbanks School Meeting House, 508 Fairbanks Rd
