Market Runs Thursday, June 7th – Thursday, October 11th, 3-6pm
Yarmouth, Maine – The Yarmouth Farmers Market will return for the fourth season at 317 Main Community Music Center in June with 16 seasonal vendors. Each week the market mix will include several guest vendors, a food truck, and live music supplied by 317 Main faculty, friends and students.
The market will operate on Thursdays 3 PM to 6 PM at 317 Main Street June 7th – October 11th with vendors setting up in the parking lot and on the lawn at the music center. Parking is available on Main Street and in the lot across the street at Sacred Heart Church.
For the first market of the season, vendor Liquid Riot will bring back their Yarmouth tribute beer, “Herbie” with cans available exclusively at our market. Also joining us on opening day, Yarmouth resident and business owner Watcharee Limanon, will offer free dishes of Pad Thai, made with her line of thai sauces. The first 25 shoppers will receive free YFM tote bags.
Based on the popularity of last year’s MarketFest, there will be one each month this summer on June 21st, July 19th, August 23rd and September 20th. These markets will run until 7 PM and feature a cash bar, plenty of live music and extra vendors.
We are also pleased to announce 3 restaurant partners for 2018. Once again, Owl & Elm Pub and Gather restaurant will shop at our market and feature our farmers’ products on their menu. We’ll also welcome BrickYard Hollow as a partner. The new brew pub, scheduled to open in mid June, will incorporate market produce into their menu and the brewery plans to use fruit from our vendors to make several small-batch summer beers.

The Yarmouth Farmers Market has grown steadily since its relocation to 317 Main in 2015.
“In year four, our goal is to expand the regular customer base and play an integral role in Yarmouth’s growing food scene,” said YFM Manager Amy Sinclair.
In addition to creating a great shopping experience, the Yarmouth Farmers Market seeks to be a community gathering place. The market’s host organization, 317 Main Community Music Center will once again provide their venue and live acoustic music on the porch throughout the summer. “317 Main is always looking for ways to bring the community together,” said John Williams, 317 Main Executive Director. “By providing a combination of great food and music we hope people will want to stay and hang out with us for the afternoon and support the local economy.”
Once again, the market will offer food assistance for anyone who needs it via our Food Voucher Program, which was first introduced in 2016. $15 vouchers will be available both at the Yarmouth Food Pantry and at the market information booth to any Yarmouth resident, 18 or older. This program is funded by the members of First Parish Congregational Church in Yarmouth and Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors (YCAN).
None of this would be possible without generous support from our sponsors. The Yarmouth Farmers Market would like to thank the Town of Yarmouth, ReVision Energy, The Maine Coast Waldorf School, Norway Savings Bank and Maine Line Fence.
Every dollar spent at the Yarmouth Farmers Market goes directly to Maine farmers, entrepreneurs and artists. We thank you for your support!
