Dover Cove Market PlaceKnow Your Farmer • Buy Local • Make the Connection ™
Dover Cove Marketplace is an non-profit,online market, operating in affiliation with Dover Cove Farmer's Market. Our Mission is to provide a convenient online marketplace for farmers, farm producers and consumers; to buy and sell fresh local farm products, in Piscataquis, Penobscot, and Somerset counties.
Buyers: You may place orders throughout the week. When the market closes on Thursday evening, Farmers receive your order, and prepare it for delivery on Saturday, of that same week. Orders placed, after the market reopens on Saturday, are for the FOLLOWING Saturday, not the same calendar day. This gives the farmers time to complete all orders.
Orders are on a pre-buy or a pay at pick-up basis. If you do not pick up your order, it will be either sold or donated to a local food cupboard. This reduces the amount of time the farmer spends harvesting and transporting items, and unnecessary waste. When you use the pay at pick up option, we accept all major debit/credit cards, cash, check, and EBT/Snap Cards (Food Stamps.) the pre-buy option will route you through the Pay Pal website. Thanks!
Sellers: If you are a farmer, or farm producer who would like to offer your products through Dover Cove Market Place, you must register on this site, and contact the administrator. We will accept all vendors provided that:
1. At least 75% of your items are either
processed on the farm, or are made under
direct supervision of the farmer, or are

2. All farms must meet and comply with State
of Maine Department of Agriculture, Food,
and Rural Resources regulations
regarding the items that you sell,

3. All products must be delivered on time,

in pre-ordered quantities. Producers must
be willing to deliver their items to
the pick up site weekly. We encourage
