Big Thaw

January  Thaw

Crows are a caw
And along with the stew pot,
Our Market calls you.
It’s time to renew
With meat and veggies
And other goods too.
We have them right here
Up the wazoo.
They await your purchase,
for that next pot of stew.
The weather may change
And some seasons we rue,
But our Market is here
Looking out for you.

~ unknown

Open every Friday, 9 – 1,  year-round. The Original Belfast Farmers’ Market–at Aubuchon Hardware Greenhouse through mid-April, then back outdoors at Waterfall Arts in Belfast, Maine! See you soon.

Come wind, snow and cold…

Belfast Farmers' Market in WinterThe snow may fall
and the wind may blow
but the bread is fresh
though the temp is low!
Some of us show
and others don’t go
(they’re waiting for sun
or the snow plow to show
or have too many drifts
on the way that they go)
but the Market is open
from nine until one
though our member attendance
could be a tad low!

We hope to see yo there. Please drive safely. We should be back up to full winter strength next week.

Ode to The Market

Cheese and Crackers
bread and jam
tea and scones
and squash for the pie?
Where will I find them,
you say with a sigh.

We have what you seek
in these last few weeks
when those holiday meals
come nipping at your feet.

We have nearly everything
but the butter for your bread.

What was that you said?
Fruit and yogurt?
Yes, we do,
and carrots and onions
for your winter stew.

We have honey and syrup
for your sweet-tooth too.

We have sausage and eggs,
meat and potatoes,
and ready to eat meals
so cool those heels!

You want to cook
a special dish?
We have you covered
with the freshest fish.

Energy flagging,
you want a lift?
Munch an energy gem
and get your wish.

What you say,
you wanted brunch?
Try crepes from the griddle
or soup from the kettle
(it’s all in the greenhouse)
and call it lunch.

Belfast Farmers’ Market – The Original

Open every Friday, 9am to 1pm in the Greenhouse at Aubuchon Hardware, Route 1 Belfast Maine. We keep on going through the winter. Check it out.
