NORWAY, Maine β€” The farmers market is moving inside for the winter.

Norway Downtown President Andrea Burns told the Board of Selectmen at its meeting Thursday that the group will be housed in the First Universalist Church at 479 Main St.

β€œIt’s a new ambitious schedule for them,” Burns said.

The hours will be 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays, Oct. 22-Dec. 17, and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. the first and third Saturdays, Jan. 7-April 21.

The market opened this year in May at its summer spot at the municipal parking lot behind the Fare Share market on Main Street from 2 to 6 p.m. Thursdays.

Vendors say the market offers fresh produce and fruits, fresh eggs, a variety of meats including lamb sausage, jams, jellies and sauces, baked goods, fresh seafood, seedlings, annuals, perennials and cut flowers. The market also offers wood products ranging from rustic birdhouses and benches to clocks and cutting boards and fiber products from sheep and alpacas.

For more information, contact Marty Elkin or Mary Ann Haxton, co-market managers, by email at info@awrinkleinthymefarm.com or by telephone at 212-4058.
