Family Fun & FarmShares at the Bangor Y & Marden’s in Brewer… and looking ahead to the first share – yum!

May 6, 2016

Lakeside will be at the Bangor YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day this Saturday, May 7 signing families up for 2016 FarmShares, which will be delivered to the Y on Mondays starting in July. Seems like a great fit to us: a giant inflatable floating play structure, face painting, Tae Kwon Do, and…. local farm-fresh food for kids and grown-ups all season long! Come see us at our table at the Y, 17 Second Street in Bangor, and then play a game of Ga-Ga in the Y’s new Ga-Ga pit. Apparently it’s like a gentler version of dodgeball. Sounds right up my alley!

And while you’re signing yourself up for a FarmShare, don’t forget the moms in your life. FarmShares make great gifts – for Mothers’ Day, weddings, or any other occasion.

If you miss us at the Y, we’ll be at Marden’s in Brewer on Thursday, May 12 from 1-6pm. Come get anything you ever needed, and sign up for a FarmShare while you’re at it. We’ll be delivering there on Mondays as well, July-November. If you’re in the Bangor/Brewer area and Tuesdays are better for you, we’ll be delivering to Cascade Park & RetroSwagger on Harlow Street Tuesday afternoons/evenings. Click on the Workplace FarmShare tab above for details or to sign up online.

We’re happy to answer any questions you might have if you come see us at our tables, or as always, you can drop me a line at, or call me at (413) 559-1373 (don’t be alarmed by the Massachusetts number, as they say “I’m not from Maine, but I got here as soon as I could!”).

My mouth is watering as I think about what’s likely to be in that first FarmShare box: peas, strawberries, spinach, small kale, lettuces, pea shoots, radishes…. Welcome back flavor & color, I’ve missed you!! Here’s one of the things I like to do with those first pea shoots:  breakfast tacos – yum!
