It’s time for our annual migration. The snow is mostly melted, the Aubuchon Hardware Greenhouse will be filling up with spring flowers and the fields with dandelions and honey bees. Friday April 14th, we move to our summer location at Waterfall Arts, 256 High Street, Belfast. We’ll be there every Friday 9am to 1pm through October.
We are the original Belfast Farmers’ Market, serving the area with fresh locally produced foodstuffs since 1980. Come celebrate spring with a stroll in the open air. Market runs every Friday, rain or shine, and only severe thunderstorms or wind storms will stop us.
Those of us who have been serving you all winter in the greenhouse at Aubuchon will continue to do so plein air, out there under the big sky, and be joined as the season progresses until we’re over thirty members strong. As May rolls on we’ll have musical entertainment; on June 9th Kid’s Club begins, and other special events will be announced as they arise. Find us on Facebook, through our newsletter (sign up in the right sidebar of this page or on Facebook) and with updates on this site. The weekly newsletter is really worth a read! You can find back issues here.
