Black Trumpets on Black Crow

The Portland Farmer's Market is wonderful, but do you ever wonder what vendors you are missing out on at nearby markets while you are visiting Deering Oaks? Brunswick has the awesome Mother Oven Bakery, for example, and also vendors selling beef and goat meat. Bath, however, has Maine-ly Poultry, which I maintain sells the best readily available poultry you can buy in the state, and the Oyster Creek Mushroom Company, which sells foraged mushrooms. What other interesting vendors am I missing who attend other nearby markets?

This weekend we sauteed some of Oyster Creek's black trumpets with garlic and served them on bread from Black Crow Bakery and it was, as my daughter put it, "really really really" good.
