The Winter Farmers Market is held every third Thursday, November through April, from 5:00pm to 7:30pm at the St. Mary's Nutrition Center located at 208 Bates Street in Lewiston. Market organizers say that they have packed as many vendors into the space as possible so that customers can stock up on items from their favorite farmers, growers, and artisans throughout the winter months, adding healthy food choices to their pantry. The winter market also accepts credit, debit, and EBT (foodstamp) cards.
