Video--Portland Farmers' Market

As we get ready to enter winter, let's remember our summer days at the Portland Farmers' Market. This season, a fan created a video that highlighted the outdoor markets, Maine farmers, the SNAP program, and why it's important to eat local food. Check it out!

Remember that Portland's Indoor Farmers' Market begins December 10th at the Irish Heritage Center, located at 52 Gray Street (one block from Mercy Hospital on State St)!

End of Season!

It's officially the end of our CSA year, the end of most of our markets, and the end of the general growing season...

...but for Fresh Start Farms growers, it's the beginning of the important off-season, full of workshops and trainings, and making plans for next year. For Rosy (in blue)- this marks her first full season with NASAP, so we celebrated her last market of the year with a celebratory cake and many warm congratulations :)
