A great April market and a look ahead to next season

IMG_1601Suddenly the wooden floor and cinder block walls were transformed by green. Lettuces, broccoli rabe, seedlings, and spring flowers gleamed on the tables. In this our last “winter” market spring has come. The room soon filled with people shopping, chatting, feeling happy to be together again. All in the name of good local food.

It was a wonderful market on Sunday, and our second busiest this season. Thank you to all of the participants – on both sides of the table – who make this a fantastic event.

And an even bigger thank you to Jessica who has managed this market from dream to thriving community event. She has put in untold hours of hard work and deserves to be very proud of the market she has created.

I am very grateful that she has now passed this market to me, Katie Semro, to manage. And I am looking forward to next season already.

A little bit about me. My family and I moved to South Berwick last August from Winchester, England. I am American, my husband is British, and I lived in England for 11 years. I am thrilled to be back in Maine, where I went to college, and have been amazed with the local food available here in the Seacoast. 

I am mom to Imogen, nearly 5, and Rhys, 15 months. Before having kids I had my own business making wedding stationery. Whilst I loved stationery, food is my passion. So I am very excited to turn my energy and knowledge to benefit great local food. 

I am looking forward to carrying on this exciting community event and hope to see you at the markets!

Sustainability Fair & Art Show at the April 26 Market!

The next and last market of this winter season will be a big one!  Not only will you find many local food vendors, but you will also have the chance to learn about environmentally-minded local businesses and nonprofits at the Berwick Sustainability Fair.

The Sustainability Fair will also include art by local students and community members.  Their artwork will make use of recycled and re-purposed materials to share messages about food security and equality, resource management and sustainability.   permaculture

March Farmers’ Market a Blast!

Today’s market was a steady stream of smiles and fun as ADSC_0448ndrea Szirbik played her upbeat tunes to the market buzz and kids made their oDSC_0396wn snowball catapults – thank you Beth for bringing this kids’ activity to the market!  Here are just a few snapshots of kids hard at work to make those “snowballs” fly.  Thank you to all the customers, vendors, and volunteers who made today’s market another wonderful one.

What brings you to the market?

What’s there to do on a late winter Sunday in southern Maine?  The Berwick Winter Farmers’ Market is perfect outing for you and your family.  Here are just a few reasons the March 8th farmers’ market is not to be missed!

  • Live music. “Folk with a twist.” That’s how Andrea Szirbik describes her music, but you might just call it fun. Dance down the aisles while you fill your bag with local goodness.
  • Sustainability.  24 life-sized Lexicon of Sustainability posters will be on display. You won’t find these many places, and words do not do them justice – give them a look!
  • Free re-useable bags. March special – sign up for our email list and get a free re-useable market bag.  Produced by Berwick’s Deb & Duke’s Monogrammers, this bag proudly displays the market logo and a list of your favorite vendors.  Fill it high!
  • Community. You’re likely to run into friends you haven’t seen in years, or at least since the last market, and this is your chance to shake hands and catch up with the people who bring local foods to your table.  Plus, say hi to the…. Berwick Public Library,  Great Works Regional Land Trust, and American Legion Riders.  They’ll all be there to give you latest news on projects and opportunities right here in Berwick.
  • Special guest, 11am. What is “Agri-Culture?”  Local homesteader Peter Kellman will be posing and helping us answer this question.  Join the free discussion at 11am downstairs in the Town Hall.  Learn how agriculture has evolved as part of our culture and how we can do more to support small farms today.
  • Kids’ challenge. Build your own “snowball” catapult!  While you shop, Beth Pomerleau will challenge your kids’ young minds to engineer their own indoor catapult made of simple materials.  Everyone gets to learn, have fun, and eat good foods this Sunday!
  • The vendors! Have we not mentioned the main attraction, the 25 vendors who will be filling the room with every imaginable local food?  Get your staples: vegetables, meat, eggs, and fresh bread.  Treat yourself to: scones, pies, jams, and chocolate.  This is just the short list – there’s even more to discover and enjoy on March 8th.

Come to eat, connect, learn, have fun, see and taste it all.  Whatever brings you here, welcome to the Berwick Winter Farmers’ Market!  This Sunday, 10am-1:30pm, at the Berwick Town Hall.

Market Cancelled due to Snow!

Dear customers,

Regretfully, the February 8th market is cancelled.  Please help us spread the word in any way you can. Snow is expected to start falling tonight and continue all day tomorrow.  Better for everyone to stay safe and off the roads as much as possible.

Luckily, we are not likely to have this problem in March.  Please mark your calendars for the next market on March 8th!  We will see you then.

Lots to Love at the February Farmers’ Market!

This Sunday, you’ll find a full house of 25 vendors providing just about every kind of local food.  Come see what they’ve got!  Not only healthy ingredients for your family’s next meal or a Valentine’s Day dinner, but some unique gifts for V-day too, like chocolates, jams, and soaps.

It’s not just a month for sweethearts.  Bring your friends and family to enjoy the upbeat music of Andrea Szirbik.  Let your kids’ imaginations work while you shop; we’ll have a special kids’ activity just for them – catapult challenge!  And don’t forget to pick up your re-useable market bag made by Berwick’s Deb & Dukes Monogrammers – only $3.

So much to love on February 8th!
