More than 20 vendors lined upper Main Street May 21 for the first of six monthly street festivals organized by the Belfast Farmers’ Market.

Main Street was blocked off to cars at the corners of Beaver and High streets from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., when farmers, bakers, cheese makers and other vendors set up booths with food samples, informational pamphlets and items for sale. Peacemeal Farm, Good Karma Farm, Sweet Henry’s, Auntie Lynn’s Kitchen, Appleton Creamery and Meadowsweet Farm were among the vendors showcasing their goods. Fiddler Hila Shooter was also on hand to set the mood.

The Belfast Farmers’ Market, which runs on Front Street every Friday until Oct. 29 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., will host five more street festivals on Main Street on June 18, July 23, August 20, Sept. 17 and Oct. 8.
