The Belfast Farmers’ Market was established in 1980 to provide local small growers and craftsmen with an outlet for the sale of fresh picked produce and related agricultural products; to foster an appreciation for Maine’s rural resources; and to develop sources of marketing, management and agricultural information for its members.
The Belfast Farmers’ Market functions as a non-profit membership organization that oversees the establishment of market guidelines, sets quality standards, promotes the market, and encourages growth of the local/regional food supply. All member-vendors must carry necessary and appropriate licenses and insurances.
In an effort to broaden availability of fresh local food products to all socioeconomic groups in Maine, the Belfast Farmers’ Market is participating in a program to accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) Cards and other forms of credit. The program is offered by the Maine Farmland Trust, by volunteers. Look for the SNAP/EBT table set up at market to make use of this service.
PLEASE NOTE: Some member-vendors also accept credit/debit directly and may also accept WIC. (Look for the EBT, WIC or Credit Card signs posted in Market stalls.)
