Chef Eric Flynn from the Haraseeket Inn said last week he was considering making BBQ beef short ribs, carrots, chips and fried kale, and pairing it with Freeport Brewing Company’s Chocolate Port Beer. But that could change.

There will even be choices for vegans at this meaty event. Chris McClay of Modern Vegan in Portland said she’ll be making Buffalo cauliflower “wings” with either a bleu cheese or a ranch dressing.

SAMPLINGS AT THE MARKETPLACE (TWO SESSIONS)

WHEN: Session I noon to 2:30 p.m.; Session II 4 to 6:30 p.m.

WHERE: Oceanside Pavilion at Ocean Gateway Pier, Portland

HOW MUCH: $45

This, in my opinion, is one of the most fun events of the festival because you always find some new local product you didn’t know existed.

Last year, organizers heard feedback that there wasn’t enough food, so this year they’ve added 15 to 20 more food vendors, bringing the total to more than 60.

Among the new vendors will be Piccolo, the new Portland restaurant; The Maine Table, a new restaurant in South Portland; Vena’s Fizz House; the Gilded Nut Snack Co.; Sushi Maine, a caterer; Choomi Cookies (from Po’ Boys & Pickles); and more.
