Bath Matters – March 21, 2013 | Main Street Bath, Maine - The City of Ships

In this week's Bath Matters -- Main Street BathJoan Detel updates us on what's available at this Saturday's Market Morning

Hopefully the last snow of winter is melting as you head for the first Farmers Market of spring. Here at the Freight Shed, on Commercial St behind the Customs House, in Bath, we welcome you Saturdays from 9 to 12.And, despite the snow and cold weather, things are GREENING UP a little more each week.
Goranson Farm is bringing in pea and sunflower shoots, as well as braising and salad greens; Jan even had a glass of fresh mint last weekend! At Sparrow Farm, the bright red radishes and their leaves sing spring, surrounded by fresh lettuce, celery, Swiss chard and herbs.
At Small Wonder Organics look for mixed salad greens and perfect spinach. Squire Tarbox is bringing in greens as well. Micromainea is offering broccoli, curly cress, cilantro garnet mustard, purple kohlrabi and purple radish sprouts to zing up you salads or sprinkle on mashed or souped up winter vegetables. Judy was pleased to share that she has added Tao in Brunswick and Solo Bistro in Bath to her list of customers- which already includes Bresca in Portland.
The Turkey Farm continues to being in delicious KORV sausages made with turkey and potatoes and flavored with caraway and garlic; you really should try their turkey chili, which is thick and meaty and makes a great lunch on the run. Try some of the flavorful chicken parts from Maine-ly Poultry spiced up with great garlic from Squire Tarbox.
Our cheese makers are working out. Balfour Farm is offering brined feta, nice happy chunks for salad, as well as their new Guilford Garlic. Hahn’s End has a nice batch of their luxurious Blue Velvet, , and some noble Hill Reserve that is just right to eat. Caitlin at Appleton Creamery is starting to use up all that milk from kidding season-lots of fresh chevre, and perfect manchego.
Cookies are blooming as well. Try ginger molasses or shortbreads from Beryl's Pastries, or chocolate chip and oatmeal from Chase Farm Bakery. Make your tummy happy.
This week, our music is brought to you by April Reed Cox. Check out the boatbuilding on the river side -- Maine's First Ship folks are happy to share info.
