Portland Maine considers legalizing sales of raw milk at farmers’ markets

From Liz Leslie on Earth Eats:

Raw milk has seen a fight — from the August 3 raid and arrest of the “Rawesome Three” to recent E. coli illnesses tied to the product.

Portland, Maine thinks it may have a solution.

Legalize Milk

A package deal sent to the city council asks for raw milk to be legalized at farmer’s markets, but any vendor who sold the milk would also have an information sheet attached.

The fact that raw milk isn’t legal is news to Portland vendors.

Maine is one of 30 states that allow for the sale of raw milk in some manner, although it’s illegal to sell raw milk in schools or hospitals.
