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 deliver this Friday.
COVID-19 Update
The Grange market is now closed for the season.

Western Maine Market continues to operate - bringing local food to folks in Franklin County with some added precautions.

For Farmington pick-up: We will be meeting vendors and customers OUTSIDE the Better Living Center. Please stay in your car while we place your order in the back. We are aiming to avoid all face-to-face contact for the time being.

We will be delivering orders as usual. Please 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. Please wait for us to step away before coming out to get your order.

Seedling Pre-orders
Menu Group: Plants and Seeds
Section: Vegetable Starts
Vendor: Whitehill Farm
This is the last week for actual pre-orders …we’re planting, and it will be a matter of what is actually available from now on. There will a lot to choose from, we are planting and transplanting and we will take all orders.

Seedlings will be available later, without pre-ordering; but pre-ordering is the best way to guarantee that the seedlings you want will be available at planting time.
