Opening of the Summer Farmers' Market!
It's hard to believe but the opening of the summer farmers' market is just around the corner on Sunday, May 25th from 10:00 -1:00 pm. We'll have live music with Jerry Jo!, face painting and spin art with Art Van, a Memorial Day Raffle Basket and maybe even some babay farm animals to snuggle up!
Visitors to the market can expect to shop with nearly 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, gluten free products, live lobster and seafood, maple products, fresh cut flowers, perrenial plants, handcrafted soap, local art and craft 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 "Fresh Food Champion" program to support SNAP and WIC users in purchasing more fresh fruits and vegetables.
So throw the cooler in the car, grab family and friends and head on down to the Lewiston Farmers' Market for a day of fun, food and community!
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 all people of Lewiston and surrounding communities 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 twelve 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.
