GARDINER — The Troll Haven/Bandy Orchards Farmers Market will open for its third edition on the Fourth of July.
It will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at 950 Gardner Road.
Several more farmers markets are planned over the summer: July 11 and Aug. 1, 15 and 29, as well as a few in September, organizer Jen Bandy-Phillips said in a press release.
Baked goods, handmade goods and produce will be sold with ample space between vendors, a hand-washing station, social distancing signs and extra masks if visitors lack them.
The orchards have 26 varieties of apples and pears, plus cherries, Italian plums and figs.
“The cherries are just about ready, and the rest will ripen later in the summer, where we’ll begin selling at the market, and be also providing U-Pick for families,” organizers said.
“It’s a great place to come for families with tons of space to walk through the orchards, enjoy the farmers market and even take a walk on the beach,” Bandy-Phillips said.
