Carol’s Traveling Flower Show! Carol’s Collectibles Nursery
Belfast Farmers’ Market is the place to be if you are looking for healthy, hardy, locally grown seedlings, perennials, herbs, trees, shrubs and even dahlia tubers! And speaking of gardens, we can talk gardening! We invite you to tap into the vast knowledge of our farmer and grower members when you make your purchases directly from folks who do the growing. Don’t forget, SNAP Grows Gardens!
Dahlias from Fire Flower Gardens & Barbara Walch Pottery.
Don’t forget, you can use SNAP and Maine Harvest Bucks to purchase food bearing plants.
LIVE MUSIC AT MARKET
Music this week is by local duo Edith and Bennett. Edith & Bennett sing worksongs and play old-time dance tunes from Maine and beyond.
Learn more about these folks on Edith & Bennett’s website.
The news is out. Belfast Farmers’ Market has been voted the 2017 People’s Choice Award winner for Best Waldo County Farmers Market/Farmstand in Courier Publication’s annual Best of the Best awards. Thank you for your vote. Now we invite you to join us at the 2017 Waldo County Best of the Best Showcase Gala where we’ll all help raise funds through a silent auction for goods and services, to benefit the University of Maine Hutchinson Center scholarship for Waldo County students
Belfast Farmers’ Market has donated a $50 Value Market Share to the auction, so come on out and bid it up to help those Waldo County students realize their goals. The Market Share will be redeemable for goods from any combination of our members during the summer season up to an aggregate total value of $5o.
The Gala is free, family friendly and open to all with lots of giveaways and a variety of refreshments, and showcases many of the Best winners. We’ll be serving up finger food provided by our members.
Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 5:30pm – 8:00pm at 18 Spring Street, Belfast, (the old Mathews Brothers showroom now the United Farmers Market of Belfast, not to be confused with the original Belfast Farmers’ Market which is always at Waterfall Arts on High Street in summer!)
Announcing Snap Grows Gardens! You can now use your SNAP benefit as well as Maine Harvest Bucks to purchase seedlings for food-bearing plants at Belfast Farmers’ Market. Are you getting ready to plant your garden? Have questions about how SNAP for Seedlings or Maine Harvest Bucks work? Stop at the Market Info table and ask. The friendly volunteers will answer all your questions.
NOTE: The information booth has moved to the back side of the Waterfall Arts Building NEAR where Peacemeal and Half Moon Farms set up, in order to make use of electricity for the machine.
Belfast Farmers’ Market has loads of vegetable seedlings as the weather warms up and the growing season gets under way. More arrive every week and many varieties are available into early June. Check Market weekly, and ask your friendly farmer if you’re looking for something you don’t see. It’s probably in the greenhouse, and on the way.
Speaking of Volunteers – Thank you!
We’d like to thank those of you who answered our call for volunteers at the information booth! Welcome to: David Beckford, Diane Braybrook, Deborah Cyr, George Didelot, Bonnie Irwin, and Norman Kehling! If you see these folks, please give them a warm welcome and thank them for supporting the farmers market and Maine Harvest Bucks program! We also have deep gratitude to Katrine Anderson, Marina DeLune, Jacqui Lee, SJ McKay, Nancy McAlley, and Ann Mullen for coming back and giving their all! Those colorful new chairs are Anne’s innovation and contribution. Sit and enjoy yourself! The information booth has moved to the back of the Waterfall Arts Building, in order to plug in our sales machine.
