Wishing you a healthy and prosperous 2016 from the Belfast Farmers’ Market, twenty-odd Maine farmers, growers and producers of fresh local foodstuffs and value added goods. After a holiday break of two weeks, market is back in business.
Market runs year round on Fridays from 9am to 1pm. During the winter months find the market at Aubuchon Hardware Greenshouse through March (or early April). In spring, the market moves outdoors again to Waterfall Arts. See Locations for map.
Shake off those short daylight days by getting out every Friday to rub elbows with some of Midcoast Maine’s finest producers and purchasers of farm produce, dairy, bakery, meats, seafood, gourmet prepared foods, value added farm goods and crafts.
Belfast Farmers’ Market sets up every Friday (except Christmas and New Years). Throughout the winter you can find great company, locally produced food and value added goods in a cozy atmosphere in the greenhouse.
While you’re at it, pick up that bag of snow melt or a new shovel at Aubuchon Hardware, the market’s gracious host on Route 1 in Belfast Maine.
