Last Day for the Stonington Farmers Market

Today is the last day the Stonington Farmers Market will be held in 2016. Next weekend, most farmers will head to the Common Ground Country Fair in Unity, Maine.

You might want to come by and pick up some of Anne Bossi’s award-winning goat cheese. It’s beautiful stuff to look at — and to eat. Anne has been making cheese all her life. She and Bob Bowen have about 100 Saanen, Alpine and Nubian dairy goats at their Sunset Acres Farm in Brooksville.


Anne says when she goes into her cheese room in the morning she takes a deep breath and says, “This is why I do it.”

You can’t miss Anne. She and Bob are by the giant yellow truck next to the Island Community Center. Click here to find out where else you can find their delicious cheeses.


You might also want to pick up a frozen seafood pie from Avalon Kitchens. If you haven’t tried their delicious Clam Chowder Pie, you must. It’s a two-crust pie filled with clam casserole, a yummy combination of clams, crushed Ritz crackers, sage and aromatics, salt pork, Old Bay, butter and more. Dan and Leslie Landrigan live in Stonington, but make the pies in a commercial licensed kitchen in Orland. You’ll find them by the 44 North Coffee stand.

Grab some clam pie or some goat cheese before it’s all gone.

  1. Thank you to all the vendors who helped make this a trouble free year, Hope to see you all next year. Plus maybe more vegetable farmers. That should help grow the market.

    Also thanks to all the wonderful customers who make it all worth while. We appreciate the regular customers who return yearly plus all the locals who come weekly. Especially the younger people who will be customers for years to come.

    This is the end of the 24th year of the Market that started in Deer Isle, outgrew the area and moved down to Stonington. And thanks to the town of Stonington for the continued support. Nice to feel wanted !!
