Western Maine Market offering pick-up in Rangeley

RANGELEY - Western Maine Market, Franklin County’s online farmers’ market, now offers order pick-up at The Farmer’s Daughter in Rangeley. “Rangeley residents have been requesting better access to fresh local food. Thanks to the generous support of Nate and Jess Nichols at the Farmer’s Daughter and Ernie Gurney, a Rangeley resident who regularly commutes to Farmington, we can now provide it!” said Deborah Chadbourne, the Freeman Township resident who runs both Western Maine Market and Rasmussen Farm, one of the market’s vendors.

The year-round online farmers’ market has been serving the Farmington area since 2009. It offers area people the opportunity to shop from home for healthy local food, expanding access to people unable to make it to the farmers’ market and allowing advance menu planning for those who can. Nearly twenty farmers and producers—even a fishery in Sabattus—offer their locally-grown produce, fresh and dried herbs and herbal blends; baked goods, preserved and prepared foods; meat, seafood, and eggs; honey and maple syrup; cut flowers, seedlings; personal care products and gift certificates through the website.

The Rangeley pick-up site is an addition to Western Maine Market’s free delivery service to customers in downtown Farmington and Strong and their other pick-up locations: Friday afternoons at the Western Mountains Alliance office in Farmington or at Whitehill Farm in East Wilton, and Saturday mornings through April at the farmers’ market in the Grange Hall in West Farmington. May through October there will also be Farmington pick-up sites at the farmers’ markets by the Better Living Center on Front Street Fridays and in front of the district courthouse on Main Street Saturdays.

The Farmer’s Daughter, at 2485 Main St in Rangeley, offers fresh local produce, baked goods, fine cheeses, gourmet goodies, wine and beer, focusing on organic groceries. They are open 10 am – 5 pm seven days a week. Orders placed through the online market’s website – www.WesternMaineMarket.com – any time before 11 pm on Wednesdays can be picked up at the Farmer’s Daughter from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturdays. Payments to Western Maine Market can be made by cash, check, CSA share, gift certificate or PayPal.

Western Maine Market emails a weekly newsletter announcing new products and local events and information about, and recipes for, some of the more unusual offerings. To join the email list, send a note to info@westernmainemarket.com.
