Marvelous day for a market

The Lewiston Artisan Farmers Market kicked off a new season Saturday at Academy Park.

Despite a few hiccups – the Orange Cat Coffee Co. had a technical issue delaying its market debut, while a few other vendors weren’t quite ready for primetime just yet – crowds were plentiful – and people seemed pleased with the setup. Music was playing and patrons were eating breakfast sandwiches (until they sold-out), buying produce and mingling with friends – many of whom they couldn’t see last year in the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

Now a summer staple, the Lewiston Artisan Farmers Market will operate on the Portage Road side of Academy Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Saturday through Oct. 9. On Peach Festival weekend (Sept. 11), it will move across the street to the Griffon House. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/lewistonartisanmarket.
