A Few More Weeks Out in the Weather

Pumpkins at Peacemeal FarmGrab your raincoat and umbrella and don’t let tomorrow’s forecast for much needed rain keep you from market. We’re here  on High Street at Waterfall Arts rain or shine until November 4th, when we move into the greenhouse at Aubuchon Hardware on Route 1 south of town for the winter months.
Still a huge assortment of vegetables, fruit, meats, seafood, cheese and dairy products, baked goods, ready to heat and serve meals and value added food stuff along with a few farm crafts.

We’ll have an update on a new Winter Market member and  the full to capacity lineup in next week’s post. Get all the news sent to you inbox by subscribing to our newsletter in the right sidebar.

Frost on the Pumpkin? Carrots in the stew!

Winter storage vegetablesWhat gorgeous weather, in spite of the killing frost some of us had this past week. It only makes the carrots, beets and turnips sweeter. Don’t let the see-saw weather kid you, it really is October–harvest time. All those  nutritious long-keeping winter storage vegetables are making their way to market, along with the fall meat production. Time to stock up, make some leek and potato or carrot soup, or a last batch of Ratatouille for that freezer with those lingering tomatoes and whatever else you want. (Some of us still have summer squash coming while others have lost nearly everything tender–on the same road!).

Fiddling Friends will be serenading the market this gorgeous fall day.

Don’t Let the Rain or the Fair Fool Ya, We’re Open

Dickey Hill Farm in SeptemberRain. Finally. Who can lament after such a dry summer–even when it arrives on a Friday! It’s Common Ground Fair weekend and a bunch of our members will either be selling at the fair instead of today’s market, or taking a well earned day off to volunteer or simply hang out over in Unity at MOFGA’s annual farm and garden celebration.

Grab your raincoat, umbrella and the shopping basket and head on out to market. We’re open as usual. 9am to 1pm, rain or shine.

Should be plenty of produce and most of the standby foodstuff at Market today. Remember, the Belfast Farmers’ Market runs YEAR ROUND!
