Maine Water Buffalo Co. at Belfast Farmers’ Market
Me. Water Buffalo Co. announced earlier today that their new milker Vera isn’t working out as well as they had planned, so they will not be offering dairy products at market this week. As always, meat will be available. You can read all about the trials and tribulations of raising and milking water buffalo on their Facebook feed.
Shell peas. That’s the word from Peacemeal Farm this week. Nothing like a July meal of fresh fish from Pemaquid Lobster and Seafood and peas right from the pod. BTW, Pemaquid is back online after a laptop crash, so check them out for what’s new at market.
I missed this one a while back. The Maine Meal made this announcement:
“NEW POPSICLE! Strawberry Rhubarb. Sooooo good!”
suecakes! is brief and to the point on her Facebook posts. Looks like there may be tarts at market this week. Better stop by and peek into the little green house!
Highland Organics® offers soothing blueberry beverages, hot and cold. They are running a coupon deal on their web site. Check it out here. Blueberry tea and barque is always available.
Barbara Walch’s Fire Flower Garden is loaded with blossoms again this week. Last week her bouquets and nosegays sold out. This week she’s bringing edible bouquets along with all those lush and vibrant bunches.
If you’ve been enjoying those fresh crepes at market, you might be happy to learn that Billie Barker of Enchanted Kitchen at Fire Fly Farm also makes wood fired pizza at the farm. She has announced on her Facebook feed that she is having an open farm day on July 27. Learn more about it here, or stop by market on Friday and ask her about it in person while she cooks up your breakfast or lunch.
Nancy Schroeder plays harp at Belfast Farmers’ Market in early June 2014.
Searsport native Nancy Schroeder will play the Irish harp at market on Friday, July 11, 2014. She performs locally for weddings, at events and other occasions and has studied under master harpers around the world. Learn more about Schroeder at Maineharp.com.
In addition to Belfast Farmers’ Market member’s farm-crafts such as baskets, yarn, hand made wreaths and value added foodstuffs, the Belfast Art Market is open in the front yard of Waterfall Arts.
Make a morning of it. Bring your out-of-state company down to market for all their Maine souvenir shopping and buy the fixings for a fresh local lunch at market. There is something for everyone at 256 High Street Belfast Maine every Friday from 9am to 1pm. Rain or shine.

No doubt there is a whole lot more market news this week. The farmers are too darn busy to share much with us, and we just can’t keep up with chasing it all down to share with you here. You’ll have to stop in and sleuth the rest out for yourself.
