Please note that this week, both Western Maine Market and the Grange market in Farmington will be operating on a special Thanksgiving schedule. The Grange market will be held Wednesday the 25th instead of Saturday the 28th. Hours will be as usual, 10 am to 1 pm.
For Western Maine Market, those of you on our mailing list will receive the newsletter on Monday and should place your order on Monday or by 6 am Tuesday morning. Order pick-up and delivery all will be on Wednesday the 25th, not on the Friday or Saturday following Thanksgiving.
Those of you picking up in Farmington this week can choose to pick up at the Grange market 11am to 1pm or self-service at the Better Living Center 2-5 pm.
We won't be able to deliver to Rangeley until Friday, but those of you in Rangeley still need to order today or by 6 am tomorrow morning to receive items this week. Items bound for Rangeley will be held at Rasmussen Farm in Freeman from Wednesday afternoon until Ernie returns to Rangeley Friday - time to be determined.
Schedule: Order Wednesday or by 6:00 A.M. Thursday morning to receive your order Friday or Saturday. Please note that our vendors typically update inventory listings on Tuesdays so if you order early you may not see all the available items for the week and may order something listed for the previous week that is no longer available.
Payment options: Please pay with cash or check on delivery to keep your money local! PayPal payments are also accepted.
We offer free delivery to downtown Farmington, along Route 4 between Franklin Memorial Hospital and Strong, up the Town Farm Road and Route 27 through New Vineyard to Kingfield, and along Routes 142 and 145 from Kingfield to Strong.
Order confirmation: Please be sure to check for an email confirmation of your order! If you do not receive a confirmation, your order was not finalized and we have no record of it.
Carrabassett Coffee Company only accepts orders until mid-afternoon on Wednesdays. If you want to order coffee, you'll need to do it before then. If you don't see coffee listed on our website, you've missed the deadline and can try again next week.

Sugarloaf area pick-up?
We would like to be able to offer order pick-up to those of you in the Sugarloaf and/or Stratton areas; but we need your help to make that possible.
- Pick-up location: Could you suggest a convenient pick-up location? It could be as simple as a place where we could leave a self-service cooler.
- Transportation: Do you regularly travel between Kingfield and Carrabassett Valley or Stratton on Friday afternoons? If so, would you be willing to consider delivering for us in exchange for a delivery fee?
If you might be willing to help us out, know someone who might, or have other comments or suggestions, please contact Deborah at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
SUGARLOAF: We are seeking someone willing to make deliveries from Kingfield to a central location in Carrabassett Valley, most likely the Public Library. It needn't be every week, and we could charge a delivery fee that would go to that person. If you or someone you know might be willing and able, please send an email to email@example.com.
RANGELEY: Our volunteer driver delivers to the theater in Rangeley Fridays around 3 pm and can meet customers then. We will let you know a more exact time on the day of delivery.
If you have any trouble ordering online, you can place your order by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Deborah at 684-4587 or 1-857-225-1199.
