How Americans Forgot And Rediscovered The Values Of Farmers' Markets

How Americans Forgot And Rediscovered The Values Of Farmers' Markets

In a highly connected age of smartphone shopping and new automated grocery delivery services, a trip to a local farmers' market can seem like an anachronistic journey to the past. The streets and parking lots where markets are often held find neighbors greeting each other amid fresh produce and baked goods as live music fills the air, creating a different atmosphere than supermarkets, much less a glowing screen at home.

But community markets were once far more common in communities...

Ellsworth Farmers Market

Located on Crosscut Avenue, adjacent to East End Park. 

An open-air market featuring produce, baked goods, and crafts, with an emphasis on buying fresh, local, and handcrafted. Market vendors are from within a 50-mile radius of Ellsworth and offerings are sold directly to the consumer.

Come to shop, then plan to stay. A different professional food vendor every week offers food and drink for purchase. Live music and performances scheduled throughout the season.
