We often think of farmers’ markets in New England as primarily a summer activity but, fortunately, many stay open year-round. The Maine Office of Tourism just shared with us a few of the great year-round farmers’ markets in Maine…
The Brunswick Winter Market runs every Saturday from 9:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m., with more than three dozen vendors in the Fort Andross Mill Complex.
The Portland Winter Farmers’ Market is also every Saturday, from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 pm at 84 Cove St. Thanks to dozens of farm vendors, live music and food trucks, it give visitors a chance to really experience the dynamic Portland food scene even in the midst of winter.
Up in Oxford County, the Norway Farmers’ Market runs every Saturday from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. in the First Universalist Church with a cornucopia of produce, meats, dairy, baked goods and artisan crafts. Look for more farmers’ markets on the Maine Federation of Farmers’ Markets website.
