Farmer Daniel Perron of Sumner pushed the city of Portland to pass an emergency
Farmer Daniel Perron of Sumner pushed the city of Portland to pass an emergency ordinance this spring that would allow the sale of meat and dairy products at the Portland Farmers' Market. Although there are 61 farmers' markets in the state, direct sales account for just $1.17 million, or less than one percent of Maine's total agricultural sales in 2002. With details on how developing the new Waterville Farmer's Market was a farmer-driven process and a sampling of farmers' markets held across Maine.
