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.

MAINE HARVEST BUCKS – Double your healthy food dollars!
Participants in this program earn a one-dollar Harvest Buck voucher for each dollar they spend at market on purchases if qualified healthy food using SNAP benfits. Vouchers may be redeemed toward purchase of vegetables and fruits at the market any time throughout the year.
We are part of the Maine Harvest Bucks nutrition incentive program, which rewards participants for choosing to shop locally and extends federal nutrition supplement funds by encouraging purchase and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. The program is managed by volunteers and receives funding from philanthropies. 2019 Maine Harvest Bucks run through March 2020. More information can be found at maineharvestbucks.org. Maine Federation of Farmers’ Markets, mainefarmersmarkets.org, has information on using EBT/SNAP at farmers’ markets statewide.
