Packed on Fridays with visiting American cottagers and lucky townsfolk sneaking away from the 9-5 day job, PoCo gifts its constituents a well-stocked open-air market, that’s big, not even just for a small town. Crowds line up at the Smokin’ Buddha stall for hot veggie samosas, and Chef Jean is poised at the ready for conversation, (en francais ou anglais), doling out decadent Belgian chocolate éclairs. Locals form a line around Pete-the-Bread-Guy’s stall, even before he arrives.
Kurtz’ coffee, charcuterie, cheeses and breads, honey, maple syrup, and an abounding selection of in-season produce – you can get almost everything off your list, and into your basket. The Guild Hall across the street hosts a crafters market. For the hostess, the Port Market has flowers galore. For the advocate, the iconic “No Farmers, No Food, No Future” t-shirts are a right of passage.
