2017 Market News Updates – NEW LOCATION!

WE’RE MOVING TO A NEW HOME IN 2017

GREAT NEWS! Market will open on Saturday, May 13, 2017 in a new location IN CAMDEN–116 Washington Street .

A HUGE THANKS to the tireless work of many Camden residents, the citizens’ advisory group, Camden Select Board and our loyal customers who advocated on our behalf. We’re pleased to announce our move to a new home with plenty of parking and room for picnics and access to walking along the Camden Riverwalk. The location will get even better as it is fully developed for multiple community uses. 116 Washington Street (Route 105) is near the popular Megunticook Market, two blocks from Route 52 and can be reached on foot from the downtown area  by sidewalk. It is easily accessible from both downtown and outlying areas–out of the fray but close to town. Thank you Camden. We’re excited as we move forward with plans for 2017, our 43rd year of bringing locally produced goods to Camden and Midcoast Maine.

Excerpt from Camden letter of commitment

Roberta Smith, Interim Town Manager, from Camden, Maine’s  Letter of Commitment  dated February 7, 2017.

From Karen Brace, Camden Community Development Director:

I’m very happy to be enclosing a signed letter of commitment from the Town of Camden to the Camden Farmer’s Market to locate on the Tannery site at 116 Washington Street beginning in May of this year. The letter spells out the details of our intentions to fix up the site as we had discussed in anticipation of your opening date on Mother’s Day weekend.

As I have expressed in person, we are thrilled at the prospect of having the market locate at the Tannery site at long last. Your opening date on Mother’s Day weekend is also an annual celebration in the town called “Camden Is Blooming.” The Camden Area Business Group will be able to list the Opening of the Farmer’s Market as a primary feature of the festival and a cause for celebration!
