Patrons invited to Taste of the Market March 24
Belfast Farmers’ Market is offering a Taste of the Market Friday, March 24, 10 a.m. to noon, at its winter home in Aubuchon Hardware greenhouse on Route 1 in Belfast.
Members will be sampling serving suggestions for their foodstuffs and produce, ranging from locally made cheeses, a seafood dish, crudités and dip, baked goods, jams and more.
