Thanks to Waterfall Arts at 256 HIgh St. Belfast Maine. They provide their back yard for the Belfast Farmers’ Market
The stalwart members of the Belfast Winter Farmers’ Market move back outdoors today to the Market’s summer location at Waterfall Arts, 256 High Street, Belfast Maine.
Expect to find the fine array of cheese, baked goods, produce, meats, seafood and value added goods that you’ve been enjoying all winter. Spring greens raised in high tunnel greenhouses have been available for a few weeks already. Can radishes and lettuce be far behind?
New Beat Farm Spinach
The full summer market season begins officially in May and runs through the end of October. Belfast Farmers’ Market once again extends a hearty thank you to the owners of Belfast Aubuchon Hardware who generously provide a home in their greenhouse for the Winter Market.

April 10 we will gratefully remain at Aubuchon Hardware Greenhouse. Although the birdsong sounds more or less like spring, the robins are hop-hopping and the popple buds are swelling, the glaciers at Waterfall Arts are still hanging on, and coincidentally, creating a new bog. Let’s all send the universe melting thoughts so we can get back out there in the fresh air and those Robins can find some worms!
Belfast Bay Fiddlers
Ben Perrin of Burke Hill Farm has done a fantastic job of filling most of the Belfast Farmers’ Market’s dates with talented local musicians for this season’s entertainment. You can find the Entertainment Schedule here. There are still a few spots to be filled. Ben’s contact info is on that page too.
This season’s lineup offers some local favorites including a Bangor area pianist and vocalist, Colin Graebert. According to his website:
Colin Graebert is a freelance pianist working the Greater Bangor area. A versatile musician, Colin works as a music director, jazz pianist, vocalist, choral accompanist/director and is currently employed by four school systems.
You can also find information about Graebert’s music on his Facebook page.
Local musicians Frets Halligan, Velocipede, Belfast Bay Fiddlers, Jennifer Armstrong, Clayton Clemetson, Scot Canon and Shana Hansen all have dates this season. No doubt there will be a few traveling buskers and some hands-on pottery lessons as well. Stay tuned for updates and as always, check Facebook for last minute bookings.
