"Meet Your Farmers and Fishermen" and get your share of the Maine harvest at a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and Fisheries (CSF) Fair in your community on Sunday, February 27th.

With CSA's and CSF's you commit to purchasing a share of the coming harvest before the season begins. The benefit? You get to support local farms and fishermen while getting your locally grown and harvested food direct from the producer at a fair price.

Come to one of the eleven fair locations statewide to: learn about buying a share; become acquainted with local seasonal foods; meet your local farmers and fishermen; and discover how you can grow a relationship with them. Community Supported Fisheries may not be represented in all locations.

"Meet Your Farmers and Fishermen: a celebration of Community Supported Agriculture and Fisheries" will take place on Sunday, February 27, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the following locations:
