Sliding into September – Harvest Season

September is the real showtime at farmers’ markets in New England–the sweetest corn, heirloom tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers, winter squash, onions and garlic, apples, pears and everything else you can think of, and a few you might not have–seafood, cheese, all sorts of meats, cut flowers, mushrooms, the season’s jams, jellies, chutneys and preserves, fermented foods, dairy, sweets, bread and bagels, honey and syrups, vegan options, fresh pasta and ready to heat and serve meals…and music too. We’re bursting with choice and remain outdoors at Waterfall Arts, 256 High Street, Belfast, Maine until November 1st, when we move indoors to our cozy winter home in the greenhouse at Aubuchon Hardware.
