Maine Farmers' Markets

Finding fresh, Maine-grown food is easy. Just steer your car towards one of the dozens of Maine farmers’ markets – most opened primarily in the warmer months – and bring your shopping bags.

Farmers’ markets are great not only for finding Maine produce but also scoring intensely local crops. Sidle up to a market stall and you’ll see peppers and beets and artichokes from right down the road. Foods offered will change by the week and the season, so variety is guaranteed. Besides traditional field crops, markets offer specialties like Maine honey, milk, yogurt, cheese and butter. Maine artists and artisans including potters, fiber artists, painters and others frequent many markets.

All markets are unique. Some are intimate and tucked into local parks while others are large, indoor, year-round affairs with scores of vendors and live music.

The Maine Federation of Farmers’ Markets offers this comprehensive list of markets throughout the state. To get you started, here are a few to consider:

Farmers Market at Mill Park, Augusta

This market operates at Mill Park near Augusta’s waterfront during the warm months and in a church building during the winter.
