You’ll find all shades — green greens,  YumBus green,  amber honey, red hot cheese, a rainbow of dumplings, so much more.. cut flowers can not be far off! We have your shopping list covered with our growing offering of locally grown and produced foods, colorful, healthy, in season. We’re here in the yard at Waterfall Arts on 256 High Street, Belfast, every Friday, 9 to 1.  Take in Waterfall Arts current gallery exhibit while you’re here.
