By Caryn Knudsen | Jun 11, 2009

Belfast — The Belfast Farmers' Market moves uptown to Upper Main St. for a Festival Day on Friday, June 19th. In addition to the usual market fare, visitors will also find the first of the season's fresh veggies and flower, herb, and vegetable seedlings, all while being treated to a fantastic music and storytelling performance by Belfast's own Jennifer Armstrong.

Jennifer Armstrong is a musical storyteller with songs and stories for all ages. Her programs are interactive and weave together songs, tunes and tales from the folk tradition and her own life experience. A wide variety of instruments enliven her shows including bagpipe, fiddle and banjo. This dynamic, engaging performer draws listeners into a heart satisfying, participatory community event.

The Belfast Farmers' Market is open every Friday, rain or shine, from 9am-1pm through early November, and is permanently located on Front St., down at the Belfast waterfront. Market-goers can expect to find local goat's and cow's milk cheeses, specialty baked goods, dips, and spreads, grass-fed meats, locally-raised chicken and eggs, honey, hand-crafted goods ranging from baskets to pottery, fresh and dried flowers, and a changing selection of seasonal fruits and vegetables.

The Belfast Farmers' Market was established in 1980 to provide local small growers and craftsmen with an outlet for the sale of fresh picked produce and related agricultural products; to foster an appreciation for Maine's rural resources; and to develop sources of marketing, management and agricultural information for its members. The Belfast Farmers' Market functions as a non-profit membership organization that oversees the establishment of market guidelines, sets quality standards, promotes the market, and encourages growth of the local/regional food supply. All vendors must carry necessary and appropriate licenses and insurances. Please check the website, www.belfastfarmersmarket.org, for more information about market members and coming events.
