You know the days are getting warmer and longer when the Bangor Farmers Market kicks into gear. This Sunday, May 1st, is the first of many Sundays where you can get fresh food while basking in the sunshine and chatting with your neighbors. Seriously, you'll have fresh, local food coming out your eyeballs! (Also seriously, there is no way that food would literally come out of your eyeballs. We Wikipedia'd that, and it's not a thing.) It happens from 11am-2pm, in the parking lot across from the Bangor Public Library. #eatlocal #supportyourlocalfarmer #nofarmsnofood #heybangor ... See MoreSee Less

Today is Bánh mì day at Friars' Bakehouse / Bangor, Maine! It's the day of the week all us sandwich nerds get impatiently excited about. We are hesitant to reveal much more about this mouth-watering Vietnamese-style lunch to end all lunches, if only because then you'd all want one, too, which would mean less for us... #saidtoomuch #eatlocal #lunch #banhmi #friarsbakehouse ...
