Out and About With Dulse & Rugosa
At markets we meet so many people who are interested in our Maine seaweed rich products. Especially if they have a skin condition- itchy scalp, adult breakouts, super dry skin or red patches. But they want a bit of time to go to our website and read about seaweeds and in particular how shampoo bars work. They ask if we’ll be back next week. Well, we won’t. Instead of being a regular vendor we guest vend at a bunch of really great markets. This gives us a chance to introduce Dulse & Rugosa seaweed rich skincare to lots of people and it’s fun to be part of some many markets.
Here is our schedule-
Aug 12/13/14- Maine Boats Home and Harbor show right in downtown Rockland. This is our first year with this show and we love the fact that it is right in beautiful downtown Rockland. Here’s what happening-” Each year we gather Maine's finest artists, architects, boatbuilders, craftsmen, designers, furniture makers, jewelers, and marine gear vendors together in ONE place at ONE time! Meet them in person at the 14th Annual Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show.”
Aug 13- Blue Hill Farmer’s Market, Carly was born in the town of Blue Hill so we have a special fondess for this market. Last time she was next to Smith Family Farms- Mount Desert’s Island Dairy and she raved about their cheeses. If you don’t want to take Carly’s word for it- how about Martha. Here is a link to Martha Stewart’s visit http://www.marthastewart.com/254114/smith-family-farm.
Aug 14- Newburyport Farmer’s Market. This is a bit of a hike for us but we love this quaint town and the support and interest in our skincare. It’s at the Tannery Marketplace from 9-1. The market’s mission is to “ support our local farmers, fishermen, chefs and creative community through hosting the weekly market and creating compelling events that educate, inspire and delight our community.” What a thoughtful and generous mission.
Aug 18- Portland Food Coop. We’ll be at the Coop to talk about how amazing our Seaweed Shampoo Bars are. I started my seaweed journey because I was looking for a natural solution to a chronically itchy scalp. I discovered that seaweed is a superfood for your skin. An added benefit of shampoo bars is no plastic bottle to clutter our world. I can’t wait to meet coop members.
Aug 20 York Gateway Farmer’s Market. This is a fabulous market filled with produce, flowers, yummy foods and unusual crafts. An added plus, York is a BYOB town. That means Bring Your Own Bag because single use plastic bags have been banned. Yeah York!
Aug 21- Kittery Community Market. This is our 2nd year at the Kittery Market and we love it. It's friendly, well run and always has great music. Last time I was there it was a rainy Sunday and the music by Elijah Clark really fit the mood. And they have prizes- a kayak donated by Portsmouth Kayak Adventures. Everyone gets one free entry a week just for showing up!Hope to see you at a market soon.
