Outside a snow dusting is giving Belfast the patina of fine, old silverware. Beautiful, to be sure, but I am not wishing for snow – remember the old bumper sticker which proclaimed, “Think Snow!”? Well, I am thinking Farmers’ Market and warm weather. Just a few days ago, the Belfast Chamber of Commerce issued its electronic newsletter with its calendar of events – lo and behold, the Farmers’ Market was listed for this Friday. Wow! But my spirit was dashed with subsequent notification of an error!
For those of you who eagerly seek the spring, take note. The Belfast Farmers’ Market opens Friday, May 11, 2012, at the Waterfall Arts on Upper High Street until the last Friday in October. Exception: evert first Friday of the month, the Market is located on Main Street. Then for November and December, the Market moves to the Aubuchon Hardware store on Rt. 1 towards Camden.
The Belfast Farmers’ Market is a festive event where fresh produce as well as canned, jarred and baked goods, and dairy products can be tasted and purchased. Our market is a member of the Maine Federation of Farmers’ Markets.
