Western Maine Market Newsletter


Greetings, local food lovers!
.
Place your order from Western Maine Market today for pick-up this Friday.
.
Please note temporary changes for this week only
This week we offer order pick-up as usual in Farmington Friday, 11 am -1 pm at the farmers market on Front Street, and in Kingfield 4 - 7 pm at The Maine Beer Shed. There is also an option to pick up orders in East Wilton at Whitehill Farm after 2 pm.

Amy from Whitehill Farm will be at the Friday market in Farmington to coordinate Western Maine Market's order distribution, and she will have her Whitehill Farm booth set up at Friday's market.

Sorry, but we will not be able to offer delivery or a Rangeley option this week.
Apologies for any inconvenience! Hopefully we will be back up and running as usual next week.

Deborah, who is fully vaccinated and has been masking again for the last few weeks, has mild cold-like symptoms and is waiting for negative test results just to make sure to keep everyone safe. It's probably just from working in wet clothes in cooler weather last week and refusing to wear shoes, but better safe than sorry.
