The Waldoboro farmers market opens for the first time Wednesday, June 18, at Cider Hill Farm, just west of the village on Main Street.

The open market, featuring more than dozen vendors with a variety of fresh local foods, will be open 3 to 6 p.m. every Wednesday through the summer and early fall. A sampling of the goods includes vegetables from Spear’s Farm, Broken Acres Farm and White Duck Farm. Also, seedlings, plants and flowers will be on sale from a business called: I Must Have It! Borealis Breads will have breads, baguettes, cookies, muffins and more. Mystique Cheese offers goat cheese, while Almost Edible Soaps provides bar soap, lotion and scrubs.

Spear’s Farm sells ground beef and steaks from their own herd of Angus Hereford cattle. Savage Oakes Vineyard & Winery will be on hand with their own grape and blueberry wines. Community Shellfish is marketing processed clams, processed crab meat, lobster and shrimp. Laura Cabot Catering offers fresh pies, salad dressing and syrups. Home Sweet Homestead will serve coffee by the cup, plus teas and baked goods. If you are looking for hand spun yarn, fiber or hand knit products, Twisted Maple Farm sells these products.

A children's garden will be a special feature of the farmers market, and it gets under way opening day. Kids of all ages welcome.

The farmers market is family-friendly, and people of all ages are invited to play disc golf, listen to live music and learn about birdcalls from the Medomak Valley Land Trust.
