The ICC is home to the Stonington Farmer's Market, which has been hailed as one of the most successful markets across two counties of Maine. The two-hour market takes place mid-May through mid-October on Fridays from 10AM-12PM, rain or shine. Dogs are welcome but must be leashed at all times. Shoppers will find not only abundant fresh native produce, meat products, local seafood, cheeses, specialty foods, and bakery goods, but also a variety of fine artists, craftspeople, and community organizations represented in a lively mix of more than 50 vendors. Most vendors operate on a cash basis and will accept a personal check. A few accept credit cards, but since cellular phone service is unreliable on the island, cash and checks are almost always preferred.
