I went home briefly for the weekend, and my sister had told me about a little hidden gem in Waterville (Maine) that we needed to check out! Brunch is my favorite thing ever, and there aren't many places at home that we can really go! Barrel's Community Market on Main Street is definitely my new spot! Barrel's is a super cute co-op that specializes in all natural foods that are locally sourced. There is live music on the weekends and large family style tables to sit and chat over coffee, tea or fresh apple cider! They sell homemade jellies, jams, salsa, honey, breads, cookies, and also have a large selection of produce as well. When we got there last Saturday, there were just baked pumpkin glazed donuts at the counter - so yummy! My sister ordered an omelette with spinach, tomatoes, cheddar and bacon - which was super fresh and good. They also had raspberry & blueberry glazed scones, which sadly I had to turn down after my second donut! (Oops!)
Anyhow, I'm basically writing this in support of Barrel's! We NEED to sustain places like this in our area - and I hope the community can get behind them and spread the word about this little treasure, right in our back yard!
