LEWISTON — The Lewiston Farmers’ Market at Bates Mill 5 will open for the season at 10 a.m. Sunday, May 26, of Memorial Day weekend, in the municipal parking lot, corner of Lincoln and Main streets. It will be open every Sunday from then on, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., through the middle of October.

Family friendly activities for the day include live music, a Memorial Day raffle and an arts and crafts activity. Tables and chairs will be available for visitors to have food.

Visitors to the market can expect almost 30 new and returning vendors selling farm fresh vegetables, seasonal fruit, grass-fed beef, chicken, lamb, pork, rabbit, artisan cheese and dairy, homemade baked goods, live lobster and seafood, maple products, fresh cut flowers, perennial plants, handcrafted soap, mushroom kits and local arts and crafts.

As in years past, the Lewiston Farmers’ Market will offer customers the opportunity to purchase their goods using cash, credit, debit or SNAP (food stamps) and WIC.

The market will also run the “Market Rewards” program for loyal customers and “Market Dollar” program to support SNAP and WIC users in purchasing more fresh fruits and vegetables. SNAP users who help spread the word about the Market Dollar program will receive bonus market dollars. Call 513 3848 to help.

The Lewiston Farmers’ Market is sponsored by St. Mary’s Health System and is supported by staff and volunteers from the St. Mary’s Nutrition Center.
