The Color of Spring

Loyal customer and local photographer Lynn Karlin captured the colors of spring at market in the still life  below a couple of weeks ago. The show just gets better and better as spring unfolds. 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.

Taste of the Market, St. Patrick’s Style

Join us  at Market, Friday, March 16th, 11 am to 1 pm for a taste of the market.

Taste of the MarketMarket members cook up and put out a spread of dishes for sampling. Each is made with ingredients they grow or produce and that are available at the market. It’s a great way to get ideas for how to use locally produced vegetables and value added foods in new and different ways, and sample what’s in season, in storage or newly harvested or produced. The tasting is free and open to all.

The Market’s newest member is Wild Blueberry Hill Farm from Harborside, Maine. They have joined the winter market and will be selling dumplings and other products throughout the remainder of the winter market season.

Maine Harvest Bucks

USE THEM OR LOSE THEM! 2017 HARVEST BUCKS CAN BE REDEEMED THROUGH MARCH 31, 2018

After that date, they are no longer valid. Still plenty of healthy local veggies to choose from.

T2017 Maine Harvest Bucks can still be redeemed for qualifying foodstuffs at market until March 31, after which, they expire. Harvest Bucks are a Maine sponsored nutrition incentive program. Belfast Farmers’ Market also accepts SNAP and EBT market wide for qualifying purchases.

The Market is in its 38th year, running year-round every Friday, 9 am to 1 pm and will be moving back outdoors to its summer home at Waterfall Arts in mid-April.
