Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
South Portland farmers market meets demand
Portland Press Herald - 7/20/2011.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Blue sky, a light breeze and the city's mayor dressed as a watermelon greeted the hundreds of people who showed up last Thursday afternoon for the opening day of the South Portland Farmers Market. Held in Thomas Knight Park on the South Portland waterfront, the market came to fruition after the City Council amended its zoning and licensing rules to allow the market more flexibility.
Kneading Conference rolls up its sleeves

The East Pittston mason said the job will be finished by Thursday – opening day of the Pittston Fair, the 60-year-old fair that kicks off central Maine's agricultural fair season.

Looked at another way, it reveals some of the crucial fault lines of world politics, including the origins of the Arab spring that has now become a summer of discontent.
