How to follow the market all year: The Saturday Orono Farmers’ Market is open every week beginning the first Saturday in May, and opens at 8am. After Commencement in mid May, the Market will move back to its summer location in the Steam Plant Parking Lot and remain there until the Saturday before Thanksgiving. During Homecoming weekend in mid October the market will move to the Asa Adams School (behind Fire Station) just for that day. From December until Commencement in May, the Market will be held downtown.

Pine Street Parking lot in downtown Orono

Visit the Orono Farmers’ Market at the University Steam Plant Parking Lot on College Avenue in Orono, Maine. The market is located between College Avenue and the Stillwater River, less than a mile north of downtown Orono. Now in its twenty-fifth year, the 2018 Orono Farmers’ Market is one of Maine’s larger markets with over twenty-five members offering a wide range of locally produced foods on Saturday mornings and Tuesday afternoons, open rain or shine. As in most other farmers’ markets in Maine, all of the goods for sale must be the result of the vendor’s own effort. And remember, you make a difference each time you support a local farmer.
Each year our market is open every Saturday Morning from 8 am–Noon from the first Saturday in May until the Saturday before Thanksgiving, and Tuesday afternoon from 2–5:30 pm from the fourth Tuesday in June until the last Tuesday in October.
Held in the downtown Orono parking lot—between Pine and Mill Streets—the Winter Market is open from 9am to noon every Saturday in December and on the second and fourth Saturdays of January to April. Then in May weekly until mid-May (UMO Commencement), from 8am to Noon.
