Grange Winter Market Canceled
.
The winter farmers’ market at the Farmington Grange will not be held this season. The Farmington Farmers’ Market held its final outdoor market of the season, in front of the District Courthouse, on Halloween morning. The market was scheduled to move into the Grange Hall as usual for the first Saturday of November. However, in light of the status of the pandemic and limitations on occupancy In updated guidelines from the Maine DACF (Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry) and the Maine CDC (Centers for Disease Control), it was not deemed feasible to go forward with those plans.


WESTERN MAINE MARKET UPDATES

Western Maine Market intends to continue to operate throughout the winter, as we have since we first opened for business in 2009.
Our schedule remains the same, with occasional tweaks as required by winter weather and our volunteers' schedules. For Thanksgiving week, we will be taking orders on Monday and delivering them on Wednesday rather than Friday.

We are once again offering order pick-up at Whitehill Farm in East Wilton and may add an additional pick-up location or two as the season progresses.

We intend to continue to hold Farmington order pick-up outdoors, in the parking lot across from the Better Living Center, as long as weather permits. We'll be happy to place your order directly in the back of your vehicle so you can stay snug in your driver's seat.
