Farmer’s Market open

The Windham Farmer’s Market is open for the 2024 season. It is located on Turning Leaf Drive near the Stockhouse Restaurant in the heart of North Windham. The town market is a community of producers and makers who share their talents with local shoppers on Saturday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Some of the vendors include Apple Valley Farm bringing MOFGA-certified produce from their farm to your table. Another local farm you can visit is Baker Brook Farm. They offer an assortment of pasture-raised Angus beef for sale with cuts including porterhouse, T-bone, tenderloin, strip steaks and many more.

For those interested in craftsmanship, Clay Haven Studio offers a diverse assortment of functional pottery and tableware, all hand-spun on a potter’s wheel and kiln-fired. Tinderland Candle produces natural, hand-painted candles that are designed to burn for 70 hours, which will come in handy in the next power outage.

Another vendor is Bread and Blooms, where you can pick up a loaf of bread or baked goods along with flowers to decorate the table. These are just a few of the local businesses on display at the Windham Farmer’s Market. Stop by on an upcoming Saturday.
