ABOUT

FARMERS & ARTISTS & FISHERMEN & BAKERS & CRAFTSPEOPLE 

The Stonington Farmers Market is located at the Island Community Center in Stonington, Maine. Our 2-hour market takes place mid-May through mid-October on Fridays from 10AM-12PM, rain or shine. We are a dog friendly destination but request that you keep your dogs leashed at all times.

Shoppers will be surprised to find not only abundant fresh native produce, meat products, local seafood, cheeses, specialty foods and bakery goods but also a variety of fine artists, craftspeople, and community organizations represented in a lively mix of more than 50 vendors. There is always something new to discover at the Stonington Farmers Market.

Most of our farmers and vendors operate on a cash basis and will accept a personal check. A few accept credit cards but since cellular phone service is unreliable on the island, cash and checks are almost always preferred. Please be aware that there are ATM’s available a mile away at the Burnt Cove Market at the intersection of route 15A (also known as Sunset/Burnt Cove Rd) and at the Union Bank in downtown Stonington on route 15/Main Street.

Hailed as one of the most successful markets across two counties of Maine, the Downeast Business Alliance found the Stonington Farmers Market stood out as being very successful because of the quality of products being offered, the quantity of vendors and variation of goods, as well as the number of return shoppers and the amount of money being spent during a trip. Island Ad-Vantages reported that the DBA researcher Sarah Nugent said on September 3, 2009: “This market really blew us away.”
