Family friendly activities for opening day will include live music, a Memorial Day raffle and an arts-and-crafts activity. Tables and chairs will be available for visitors to sit and enjoy good food and good company.

Visitors to the market can expect to shop with 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, local arts and crafts, and much more.

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 be running the “Market Rewards” program for loyal customers and “Market Dollar” program to support SNAP and WIC users in purchasing more fresh fruits and vegetables. If you are a SNAP user who would like to help us spread the word about the Market Dollar program, contact 207-513-3848. Those who help us out will receive bonus market dollars.

So grab family and friends and head on down to the Lewiston Farmers’ Market to celebrate the good things our city has to offer.

The Lewiston Farmers’ Market provides area farmers, artists and crafts people with a venue to sell their products directly to consumers. We provide a convenient location and friendly atmosphere for everyone to access fresh, nutritious, locally produced food.

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; a local and statewide resource dedicated to promoting community health through organizing, advocacy and education. The Nutrition Center has 12 years of experience working to create a sustainable regional food system, involving those affected by inadequate food access as partners and supporting area farms as an essential piece of the local economy.
