Deena Albert Parks, manager of the mall market said:

Everyone is excited about the merger of the two markets and the move to Riverside!  The Presque Isle Farmers’ Market is so grateful to the Aroostook Centre Mall for hosting the Market for many years!  The City of Presque Isle has been so helpful as we finalize plans for the merger of the two farmers’ markets.  The Riverside Market’s opening day will be on June 2 from 8:30-1 PM.  Please come out and support our local farmer’s and artisans all summer long.

In addition, plans are being finalized to accept SNAP, EBT, debit and credit cards.

New vendors are being accepted.  Contact Ken Arndt, Director of Planning & Development, at City Hall at 760-2727 or karndt@presqueisleme.us.
