Farmers Fare

At Farmers Fare, you will find local fruits and vegetables, an authentic butcher and deli, wonderful baked goods and so much more. In addition to the market, we're building a small "model farm" to help supply the market. When you visit, you can also inquire about our year-round educational programs and fun community-gathering events.

About half of the five acres of land is devoted to growing food. We will take advantage of the rich soil to plant unusual crops such as heirloom and green zebra tomatoes, Italian salad greens, and long pie pumpkins. In the future, our nursery will offer new and old varieties of Maine fruits and vegetables, such as green gage plums. A wetland in the middle of the property will be used to grow plants that have been cultivated by Native Americans for medicinal aids, such as high bush cranberries and cow parsnip.

In planning our market building, we chose to echo the width and length of a classic New England barn, framed in 8 by 8 hemlock. In addition, we are using materials from Maine, including hemlock, pine, tables, and chairs, even light bulbs. Our builders are local Mainers.

We also have a cafe, with long pine tables inviting neighbors and friends to sit and enjoy coffee, pastries, sandwiches, salads, and other local foods. You can access the lower level of the cafe by walking down the broad pine staircase-which will be open so as to keep the sense of space. Downstairs is a fully equipped kitchen that services the cafe and community rooms which are open to the public and used by Farmers Fare for educational and community purposes.

We invite you to join us and help grow our dream.
