Before visiting our market this season, please visit our COVID-19 page to read about how our market is operating in response to the pandemic, changes to our setup and walking traffic patter, and our new Customer Shopping Guidelines.
We have 3 wonderfully different markets for you to experience and enjoy. Whether it's early spring, the heat of summer, a crisp fall morning, or a snowy winter day, we have markets year round to keep you connected to Maine's farms and eating healthy!
If it can be grown or produced in Maine, you'll find it at the Portland Farmers' Market. We offer farm products exclusively and you can trust that EVERYTHING at our market was grown and produced in the great state of Maine. Our market has been in existence since 1768 and we are proud to continue to offer the Portland Community a place to come together and enjoy the bounty of Maine's harvest!
