This is a much anticipated event that tries to bring awareness to using locally resourced goods, as well as trying to educate on being environmentally conscious. There was a giant farmers market, live music, demos, and plenty of delicious food.
It’s held in a town called Unity, Maine. So fitting.
I don’t know if it’s because I’m from the south but I just felt so out of my element. It had such a barefoot, homegrown, hippie vibe that I felt like a fish out of water. I’ve never seen so much tie dye and bare feet. I saw a hipster wearing a blazer carrying a camelbak. It was confusing and jarring but refreshing at the same time. I just felt so uptight!
There was so much yummy food! These are just a couple if the things we sampled. Wood fired flatbread with butternut squash, sausage, and greens. We also tried pie in a cone. Fun idea but it fell a little flat for us.
We had a great time and look forward to next year. I’ll try and remember to bring a jacket!!
