Here at Highland Ave. we have been a Farm Stand for just about as long as any of us can remember. We have always sourced from our greenhouses and fields as well as other local farmers around Southern Maine. We are growing more varieties of veggies every year. Some of our favorites include: heirloom tomatoes, corn, pickling cucumbers and zucchini. Come check out the garden anytime, too! We’d be happy to show you what we have growing, or help with what you have growing.
Looking for more than just vegetables? No problem. We carry *very* local eggs, honey, maple syrup and jams as well as a variety of cheeses, crackers and more to help you avoid that trip to the "big" store. We have a great wine selection, too. With over 150 varietals from around the world, our collection is balanced from the sweetest white to fullest red.

We are in "hard goods" season: potatoes, carrots, onions, and other winter veggies. In fact, it's time to sign up for the Winter Farm Share! (http://highlandavegreenhouse.com/winter-greens/) This will run for 20 weeks, from November 4th to March 17th.
The shelves feature local honey from the Honey Exchange, jams from Kountry Kettle, delicious Jarva Cakes (these are mini cakes you make in the microwave and they are incredible!), Pasta Art from Raven's Nest Farm, Maine Sea Salt and local tea.
In our freezer you'll find Smiling Hill ice cream, Gelato Fiasco, and Martel's ice cream sandwiches.
We added Nitro Cold Brew coffee this year - if you haven't tried it, you're in for a treat.
