On the farm


If it's springtime in Maine, it must be fiddlehead season, as evidenced by this closeup of delectables taken at the South Portland Farmer's Market this past Sunday. Far left, Bennett Rideout, 3, great-nephew of Alewives Brook Farm owner Jodie Jordan, helps lug some of the 7,000 red kale plants put in the ground Thursday, May 12, at the family farm, located on Old Ocean House Road in Cape Elizabeth. Once matured, those plants will wind up for sale at the market, which has just opened for the season. Located in the city hall parking lot, it’s open every Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through October. Some vendors accept WIC or SNAP vouchers. Above, flavored bagels and more are available courtesy of Sweet and Savory Bakehouse of Limerick.
