NORWAY — Farmers Markets are not just for summer.

The Progress Centers’ indoor farmers market and online farmers market, which opened in the fall of 2009, offer a variety of Maine produce and goods from local area farmers and craftspeople.

“We get new things all the time,” market manager Jessica Paradis said as she looked at some greens that were about to be priced for sale in the online market.

The indoor market, at 35 Cottage St., is filled with items ranging from specialty chocolate sauces to jams, maple syrup, potatoes, onions, spices and handmade items such as quilted bags and baby caps. Perishables such as bread and greens are available through the online market.

The online farmers market also offers baked goods, box specials, cider, eggs, fruit, applesauce, heat-and-serve meals, personal care products, wood crafts and many other products that are all grown and produced in Maine.

Paradis said the market is operated with the assistance of adults with developmental disabilities who often assist in the placement of merchandise and delivery of goods.

The Progress Center market is open to the public Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Orders may also be placed online at [email protected] and be picked up at the center or delivered for a fee, Paradis said.

More information about the online farmers market and the indoor farmers market at the Progress Center is available by calling 207-743-8049, ext. 214 or Paradis at 890-5274.
