FARMERS Markets The expanded lineup of Farmington Farmers’ Market Association vendors for the 2021 season is an exciting prospect for local market customers. From the farms of all our members right to the plates on your table, there is something to interest everyone at our farmers’ markets!

Our two markets are happening every week from May through October right downtown - Fridays from 10am – 1pm down on Front Street across from the Better Living Center, and Saturdays from 9am – 12pm on Main Street in the District Courthouse parking lot. Visit on both days to browse different vendor offerings of fresh vegetables and fruits, jams and preserves, soaps and lotions, plants, herbs, art, and artisan works – all grown and made right here in our own western Maine community! All our market members feel very proud to help fulfill the purpose of the Farmington Farmers’ Market by providing the people of the Western Maine Mountain Region with the ability to purchase a variety of high-quality, locally grown and produced foods. We also want the public to know that we have adopted safety guidelines and operation standards for our market and for our members which we hope will help inspire public confidence in the concept of farmers’ markets, especially during these challenging times. The Farmington Farmers’ Markets also help to strengthen the local farm economy and the viability of small-scale family farms by giving our members the ability to offer their retail products directly to local customers. These important connections between market members and market-goers also help everyone in our community continue to foster an appreciation for Maine’s rural resources. Check out all of our farms’ descriptions and links on the adjacent page!
