Find maple-based products easily by visiting a farmers market or one of the retail shops that carry local goods. Pick up mustard here, a sauce or collection of nuts there and a package of maple candies for the sweetest collection and the perfect gift basket! Maple Weekend is scheduled for March 22 and 23.
