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.
Rangeley Market
Rangeley's Tuesday market is now open for the season. It's at the intersection of Route 4 and South Shore Drive, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Tuesday.

For the summer season, WMM offers a second Rangeley order pick-up option. In addition to the Rangeley Friday meet-up with Ernie, there is a limited offer for picking up orders Tuesdays at the Rangeley market. Most of our vendors only deliver to Western Maine Market on Fridays, so orders still need to be placed by the usual 6 a.m. Thursday morning deadline for the following Tuesday. We can hold frozen, non-perishable, and not-highly-perishable items over the weekend. You can order fresh items, even after the official deadline, only from vendors who participate in the Rangeley market. For the moment that means just Rasmussen Farm, but other WMM vendors will be joining the market line-up as the season gets into full-swing. Feel free to contact Deborah for more details at [email protected] or 857-225-1199.

Ground cherries: People who recognize these tasty treats say, "My grandmother used to have these!" These sweet, delicious, orange fruits are the size of small cherry tomatoes. They're great eaten out of hand as snacks, can be used to make pies or jam, and I first saw them as garnishes, with the husks peeled back decoratively, in a restaurant in Europe. Some folks say they taste a bit like pineapple. They are related to tomatillos and also have husks, but the fruits are sweet, and the plants spread out closer to the ground. Harvest late in the season, when the husks turn yellow,and the fruits drop from the plants. Don't eat the immature green fruits. Plants should be spaced 18-24" apart.
