Opening day at the Portland Farmers Market brings thousands of visitors, and customers looking for fresh, local food, drink, music, and just plain fun. But how do the farmers feel about the market, especially the first early morning of the year when they are unloading, and readying their products for sale, and gearing up for their first day of business (and social interactions) at the public market?
CUpS showed up in the early morning while the farmers were setting up, and they were gracious enough to answer a few of our questions. I have to say, this is certainly a pleasurable way to spend a few hours, and also meet with a friend, Tara Austen Weaver, author of the new book, The Butcher and the Vegetarian: One Woman’s Romp Through a World of Men, Meat, and Moral Crisis who we also interviewed for an upcoming Food News show.
