Evergreen Friday

Why spend your time at the mall on a day called Black Friday when you could be outdoors enjoying Evergreen Friday instead? Evergreen Friday is when you realize that your favorite Stonington Farmers Market vendors can make your holiday shopping easy and fun and you can shop from your computer or with your phone— just contact your favorite vendors via our Vendor Directory.  Most of our market vendors carry some or all of their products year round and are happy to ship to you from Maine.  Whether you are shopping for smoked meats, artisanal vinegars, hand made soaps, wooden crafts, artwork, jewelry, sauces, wreaths, restaurant gift certificates, wine, cheese, books, photography, quilts, toys…and much more!…think Stonington Farmers Market Vendors for all of your gift shopping this year! We thank you for your patronage.
