Saturday at the Farmer’s Market
Saturdays in the the summer we make a habit of visiting the Milbridge Farmers Market. There are so many things we enjoy purchasing at the market that we’ve set a $20 limit for our outings.
Each week there is a drawing for a market basket – goodies from some of the farmers. Last week Hannah’s name was drawn, so this Saturday she picked up her basket that included a bouquet, fresh greens, tea, and cranberry french vanilla soap.
Here are some of our favorite market stops.
Udder View Goat Farm has wonderful Chevre - our favorites include: garlic and herb, garlic and dill and chipotle. Click on the pic to check out the Web site.
Creekside Farm in Milbridge where they raise pigs and sell the best lean sausage including garlic, breakfast, and Italian. Hannah played in the steel drum band with her daughter.
The Wildflour Bakery from Steuben offers fantastic fresh baked treats. We always get a couple of cookies and a baguette, or their fabulous nutty wheat bread. I love the play on the name!
Charlotte at Little River Soap Co. in Columbia Falls is a multi talented woman. You can purchase her things online as well. Click on the picture to check out their Web site.
Carol and Ron at Beddington Ridge Farm have beautiful perennials and bouquets. In the winter they offer Christmas wreaths. Click on the picture to check out their Web site.
Most Saturdays some of Hannah's home schooled friends play music with Curtis as their leader. Lots of fun.
A nice way to spend a Saturday morning!
