We have stopped here a few times and have always enjoyed the choice of cheeses locally made. The vendors have great knowledge of their products and are happy to share.....Do not forget the sheep dog, who belongs to the knitter and weaver!!

We went to the market on the last weekend in August and there were still many sellers of gorgeous veggies. All kinds of vegetables that can grow in Maine. Lots of heirloom tomatoes, greens, onions, carrots.... We bought from almost everyone. There are several sellers of goat cheeses - which are great, a person who raises oysters and mussels in the Damariscotta River, a local winery, breads, desserts - it's great!

Friday morning market is the best - on Belvedere - Monday afternoon market located at the Rising Tide (my favorite cooperative market) parking lot is smaller but still worth checking out if you are in town. Great for baked goods, fresh/local veggies, and check out your cheese options (at least two vendors to choose from). The goat cheese with basil and pine nuts is a must. Morning Dew farm is a favorite. As a bonus, the location of the Friday market, at the Damariscotta River Association headquarters and overlooking the Great Salt Bay, is worth the visit.

Mid Coast Maine . . . you gotta go. Among the many, many attractions there is an abundance of locally grown and locally produced foods from the many farms and artisans in the region.

The Damariscotta Farmer's Market has two locations, one held on Mondays in downtown Damariscotta and one held on Fridays at the the Damariscotta River Association's 100 acre farm on the Great Salt Bay.

I visited the market at the farm. Even though I was "solo" and just visiting the area, I felt entirely welcome. Folks were very friendly! Besides fruit and veggies, there were artisan cheeses; lacto-fermented foods (including delicious KimChi from Thirty-Acre Farm), breads, freshly roasted coffee beans, a modern-day homesteading farm (Shepherds and Such that had a variety of items including hand knit items made from milkweed spun into fibers) and even a co-op farm run by refugee families -- it's practically a cultural event! A vendor was grilling meats (which smelled amazing), there was live music and some fellow brought along an amazing little dog that entertained us all with his tricks.

The Great Salt Bay Farm itself has wonderful public hiking trails along a shore front, through wetlands (providing both fresh and saltwater habitats), and along rolling fields that have been worked for 200 years -- lots of opportunities to refresh both mind and body -- a real escape from the hectic pace of modern life.
