This week at market music will be by local duo Clayton Clemetson & Audrey Budington. If you missed this duo earlier this season, now is your chance. Their combination of fiddle and keyboard fills the market air with sounds that just seem to blend perfectly with the fresh air and great local food.
Plenty of produce rolling in from our many growers, perennial plants, shrubs, medicinal and culinary herb plants, annual seedlings along with the greens, and so much more from Belfast Farmers’ Market’s 28 members, most of whom are at market these days.
Welcome Back to Jim Freyenhagen, Freyenhagen Family Farm
I’ve been meaning to post this for a while. Veteran market member Jim Freyenhagen is back at market with Maine maple syrup products and vegetables in season. Jim lost his wife unexpectedly earlier this spring, but he’s figuring out how to manage without her, not an easy task. They were a team. Stop by and show some love.
