The Belfast Farmers’ Market is hosting its fall customer appreciation event on Friday, October 13th from 11 am to 1 pm at their summer location in the yard at Waterfall Arts in Belfast.
All are welcome to stop in and sample tastes of the season with a twist. Dare to Taste the Harvest’s cornucopia of different and unexpected dishes prepared by Market members will engage the taste buds in a new experience. Look for the harvest table in the middle of the market quadrangle.
VOLUNTEERS DESPERATELY NEEDED
Our market is volunteer driven. All vendors volunteer their time to help the market run, by putting out signs, writing newsletters, serving on the board of directors and promotion committee, arranging entertainment.
Some of our most important volunteers are you, the market customer!
We desperately need more volunteers to help man the EBT/credit card/info table to keep this important service running. Please stop by and thank our volunteers for their wonderful work, and see if you too can sign up to help.
MARKET MOVES INDOORS ON NOVEMBER 3
Each year after Halloween we migrate to our winter home at Aubuchon Hardware’s Greenhouse at 231 Northport Avenue, Belfast (Rt. 1 south). This year our first indoor market is November 3, 9am to 1pm. We’ll be there every Friday (except the day after Thanksgiving and major snowstorms) until mid-April 2018. Until then, we’re still out in the yard at Waterfall Arts.
It may be Common Ground Fair weekend already, but we want to remind you that our market goes year round, moving indoors on November 4th. Until then, enjoy the gorgeous fall weather at our summer location in the yard at Waterfall Arts, 256 High Street, Belfast. Every Friday 9 am to 1 pm.
This week’s market will be a bit smaller due to many of our members selling at the Common Ground Fair. Don’t worry, there will still be plenty to choose from, and the missing members will return next week.
Here’s a tour of a tiny bit of last week’s bounty.
Carol’s Fantastic Road Show – One More Act
Carol Yee is taking Carol’s Fantastic Road Show back on the road for one more act and will be at Market this Friday, September 15. She promises a colorful show of what’s hot right now for your fall garden. Carol reports, “Fall is the best time to plant. There’s so much in color here at the nursery right now I just have to share it with my regular customers at Market.” Many plants are on sale.
Carol’s Collectibles is open at the Nursery through the fall. Check her website for info and hours: carolscollectibles.com
Market continues year round, outdoors at Waterfall Arts, 25 High Street, Belfast through October, then moves indoors to Aubuchon Hardware for the winter.
Half Moon Farm is Back
Sandy and John Spinney are back at Market after a brief break. You can once again purchase their jams, pickles, jellies and chutney along with an assortment of responsibly grown produce, Chinese lanterns and John’s hand carved kitchen utensils.
One More Week of Wild Maine Blueberries
Ben Perrin, Burke Hill Farm, “Didn’t think we’d make it another week, but the berries keep coming. We’ll be there.”
Headstrong Garlic Not at Market This Season
We’re sad to announce a crop failure at the storage phase this season. Headstrong will not be at Market in 2017.
