Farmers' Market moves to High Street location

Apr 07, 2019

Belfast — Belfast Farmers’ Market is moving Friday, April 12, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., to its outdoor location in the yard at Waterfall Arts, 256 High St., where it will be every Friday, rain or shine, through October.

With a membership of 30 area food producers, the market offers everything from fresh produce, meats, seafood, diary and baked goods, to mushrooms, all manner of cheeses and value-added foodstuffs such as fermented foods, honey, maple syrup, jams and preserves, select farm crafts, cut flowers, seedlings, perennials and locally raised nursery plants and crepes made to order.

Five new members have joined this season: A Small Good boutique charcuterie from Rockport, with wild fermented salami; Mueller’s Fruit Farm from Thorndike, with fruits and berries in season; Meadowsweet Farm, under new ownership in Swanville, with grass-fed beef and lamb; ME Water Buffalo Co. from Appleton, returning with cheese and meat after a year off; and Wild Blueberry Hill Farm from Harborside, with Chinese dumplings and soup and frozen blueberries.

The market participates in the Maine Harvest Bucks nutrition incentive program, offering those with limited incomes a means of extending their food budgets. EBT and SNAP are accepted market-wide for qualified purchases. Information about these programs can be found at the info table as you enter the market.

The market is open every Friday year-round, moving between Waterfall Arts from spring through fall and inside Aubuchon Hardware's greenhouse during winter months. Live music is offered during the summer season. Belfast Farmers’ Market has been bringing fresh, locally produced products to the area since it was established by a group of farmers in 1980.
