Western Maine Market Newsletter

Wishing you all a Healthy, Happy, and Safe Equinox, Local Food lovers!
Spring officially begins tomorrow! So there's one bright spot in these trying times.

Place your order from Western Maine Market today or by 6:00 A.M. tomorrow morning for pick-up or deliver this Friday.
COVID-19 Response
We continue to operate - bringing local food to folks in Franklin County with some extra precautions.
We offer the safest available option to distribute local food to customers with as little human contact as possible--straight from the farm to our delivery person to your doorstep. We will do our very best to follow all recommendations regarding sanitation and social distancing.

We will be meeting vendors and customers outside the Better Living Center to put together and distribute orders.

As always, we offer FREE DELIVERY to a central location in Rangeley as well as to homes and businesses in downtown Farmington and along our delivery route from Farmington, up Rte. 4 or the Town Farm Rd. to Rte. 27, through New Vineyard to Kingfield, along Rtes 142 and 145 through Freeman and Strong, and Route 4 from Strong to Farmington. We can deliver beyond our regular route for a delivery fee of 50 cents per mile from the route.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE THERE WHEN WE DELIVER. Just leave your payment by the door (or pay in advance). We will ring the bell or knock, drop off your order, and walk away without face-to-face contact.

The Better Living Center is operating with reduced hours: 9am-4pm through Thursday, 9-3 on Friday.
Maine Maple Sunday events have been postponed.
The Grange market was not scheduled to be open this weekend.
