The Common Ground Country Fair - Unity, Maine

Judy, Katie, and Raf came to visit for our annual 'Fair Weekend'. The Common Ground Fair is our favorite. It is put on by MOFGA, Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association, and is a 'celebration of rural life'. It is a fair unlike any other - there are no rides, the food is all organic, and grown locally in Maine.














Judy loves the Fiber Farms Tent, and gets inspired for all kinds of projects.
















I love the farmer's market, the colorful displays of produce, and get ideas of what I might try to grow next year.





We enjoy looking at the prize winning vegetables & flowers in the Exhibition Hall.


Katie and Raf try out the brightly colored hula-hoops.



It's a great place for 'people watching'.



We like to watch the folk artists at work.








The food is the best. Everything is grown on organic farms in Maine.









Can't wait until next year!
