While “Buy Local” campaigns seem to be gaining momentum around the country this year, Mainers have long valued locally made products. The Lewiston/Auburn area has a wealth of small owner/operated businesses for holiday shoppers to choose from.
On Thursday, December 15th, the Lewiston Winter Farmers Market will be transformed into a Holiday Extravaganza, making it easy for area residents to shop for a home grown holiday.
You will find hand-crafted unique foods, gifts, & even gift certificates. Stock up on Maine grown and Maine made products including fresh fruits and veggies, pasture-raised meats, eggs, seafood, fresh milk and artisan cheeses.
Buy bread and baked goods to freeze for the holidays, maple products, and one of a kind sweets. Find unique gifts like hand crafted soaps, pottery, fiber arts, cards, holiday wreaths, herbs and herbal products.
The Lewiston Farmers Market has become more than a simple shopping destination. The market is a great, family friendly event. Bring your appetite and have dinner at the Winter Market Cafe, serving hot soup, bread and salad combos at affordable prices. Enjoy live music as well from local favorite Jan Kendall Mayes.
The December Holiday Extravaganza will run from 5:00pm to 7:30pm on Thursday, December 15th at the St. Mary's Nutrition Center (208 Bates Street.) Additional parking is available in the parking lot to the right of St. Patrick's church.
