Western Maine Market Newsletter


Greetings, Local Food Lovers!

Place your order from Western Maine Market today or by 6:00 A.M. tomorrow morning for pick-up or delivery this Friday or Saturday.

Please note that we will not be able to deliver to Rangeley this Friday. Rangeley delivery should resume as usual next week.

Winter Market Schedule

Farmington's indoor winter farmers' market opens for the season this Saturday the 5th of November. It is located in the Grange hall on Bridge St in West Farmington, hours are 10 am to 1 pm each Saturday through April. The local outdoor farmers' markets have now all closed for the season.

The only changes to Western Maine Market's schedule are that order pick-up in Farmington on Fridays moves across Front St. to the Better Living Center, hours still 12-2pm, and on Saturdays it moves to the winter market in the Grange hall. Kingfield, Rangeley, and Friday delivery schedules remain the same, with occasional tweaks as required by winter weather and our volunteer's schedule.
