And if you can’t find what you are looking for, ask around, someone will happily point you in the right direction.
No Ordinary Trip to the Market
Here you’ll find craft, artist, and farmer’s markets from springtime through autumn and beyond. Start with the Boothbay Farmer’s Market, held on the Commons every Thursday from May to October. This community of farmers, fishermen, and artisans provides locally produced food and related products and a fun opportunity to talk directly with local food producers. The Harbor Arts & Crafts Fair is held weekly on the Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library lawn, featuring handmade items—such as jewelry, purses, jams, jellies, sea glass items, artwork, photography, and much more—sold by local craftsman.
