We invite you to explore the farmers’ markets of Midcoast and Downeast Maine! For anyone who loves fresh, local food, and loves to explore Maine, these markets are perfect destinations to start or cap off a day trip along the coast. In each community with a farmers’ market, we’ve suggested free, family-friendly outdoor activities in the area and a wealth of prime picnic spots. Print copies of the map are available at tourist information sites, farmers’ markets, and visitor destinations up and down the coast. This website includes all the information from the print map, plus photos and more information about each area highlighted on the trail.
A note on farmers’ market hours and seasons: The farmers’ markets listed in this guide are each operated independently by the farmers. Therefore they each have different seasons and different policies regarding inclement weather. Occasionally farmers’ markets must change their location or hours due to events in the community. Before venturing out on a special excursion to visit a market, always be sure to check the market’s Facebook page or website to verify the hours and location!
