Why ME - Portland Farmer's Market from Alexander Bertoni on Vimeo.

If you can believe it, the Portland Farmers' Market has been around since 1768! The next video in Alex Bertoni's Why ME series focuses on one of Maine's coolest traditions.

Every Saturday, Mainers flood down to Deering Oaks Park to peruse the Portland Farmer's Market. Maine farmers, musicians, blacksmiths, butchers, florists and more come down to this quarter mile stretch of park to sell their wares. Whether you need husk cherries, lobster mushrooms, scapes, or possibly even things people have heard of before, there is no better place to find them."

Head down this Saturday to find out what Portland residents have been raving about since 1768!
