SNAP, EBT, Credit, Debit
A reminder that rain shine or in-between, Belfast Farmers’ Market accepts SNAP, EBT, debit and credit cards. Check in at the kiosk as you enter the Market. No better way to spend your food dollars and keep them local than by purchasing nutritious locally grown produce.
Grab you Sou’wester, umbrella and Mucks and few waterproof shopping bags and head down to Market. It’s been a fairly rain free market season. I think we’re due for a good soaker. The vegetables don’t mind. Market is at Waterfall Arts through October 31.
Moving to warmer quarters for the winter November 7
On Friday November 7 Market moves indoors to its more cozy winter home in the Greenhouse at Aubuchon Hardware on Route 1, southwest of downtown. Belfast Winter Farmers’ Market runs every Friday 9 to 1 from November 7 through March 27 (except the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 28).

Catch the News on Facebook
Some of you may not use Facebook, so I’ve gathered a bit of news from market members posts and news from Anne Saggese of Sweet Henry’s [delicious goodies, by the way], who curates the Belfast Farmers’ Market Facebook page. You don’t need to be a Facebook member to view the page, just save this link, facebook.com/belfastfarmersmarket, and check it a few times a week for updates. See some Market member’s Facebook updates here on this site.
Peacemeal Farm shared this post:
Put on your rain boots, rain coat and grab your umbrella! There will be plenty of vendors at market tomorrow ready for all you hardy customers!
There’s nothing like a forecast for heavy rain at an October farmers’ market on the coast of Maine. Fortunately, it’s not snow and we will have delicious frost sweetened spinach and parsnips at the Belfast Farmers’ Market tomorrow!

Toddy Pond Farm Skipped a Week but is Back Friday, Oct. 17
When not at Market, they want to remind you that you can find some of their products at the Belfast Co-op!
Also Toddy Pond was mentioned in an article in the Boston Globe’s Travel section recently under the headline: Farms make their stock a draw for tourist trade.
Dogs at Market
Here is a blurb straight from our Facebook page:
“Special Notice re: dogs at market:
We love seeing you and your pooches every week but it has come to our attention that some of our four-legged friends are leaving special packages on the fields behind the market. These fields are owned and maintained by the Belfast Area High School and are used for their sports exercises.
Not much grosser than running with your eye on the ball and slipping in a pile of dog poop. It’s been happening more and more frequently this season and the high school has requested that we support them in their efforts to ask the public to PLEASE pick up all piles. The market would like to go further than that and say “Feel free to bring your dogs (on leashes, per market regulations!), but pick up after your dog if s/he is so inclined to take advantage of the field AND, in the spirit of cooperation, if you see a lonely, left-behind pile, pick that up, too!” Many of us vendors have plastic bags if you forget to bring one on a given day. Thank you! and our kids thank you more because they are the ones spending the day running around out in those fields.
