IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE BELFAST FARMERS' MARKET - PLEASE READ

COVID-19 and Vendor Pre-Ordering at the Belfast Farmers' Market

Support the local farmers and food businesses of the Belfast Farmers’ Market while sheltering-in-place. Farmers markets remain open as an essential service in Maine, but as we’re advised to stay home and practice social distancing,  many of our vendors are also prepared to make delicious, local food also available for pickup or delivery via pre-order. Checkout the Belfast Farmers' Market website for up to date information regarding each vendors pre-ordering options.

SNAP / EBT INFORMATION

The Belfast Farmers Market is COMMITTED to providing full access to SNAP/EBT shoppers, and our Info Tent continues to process EBT payments for our Farmers using the existing clipboard system.

In order to continue to provide EBT processing during the COVID-19 pandemic we have had to suspend access to clipboards for Credit/Debit cards such as VISA, AMEX, MasterCard, and Discover. We hope to be able to return to processing all these forms of payment in the future. In the meantime many vendors have their own Credit/Debit swipe systems, and/or have enabled pre-order credit/debit card purchasing through their Web Shops. Otherwise cash and checks can still be used for non-pre-order items.

 
MAINE HARVEST BUCKS 

The Belfast Farmers Market continues to accept and distribute Harvest Bucks to EBT/SNAP users!

You can DOUBLE YOUR SHOPPING DOLLARS
when you use your EBT card at the Belfast Farmers Market.

TODDY POND FARM...PART 2

Many folks have been asking about our Friday night Grill & Chill dinner series.

As you can imagine, with COVID-19 precautions, recommendations and requirements, putting together a plan for dinner events that are both fun and safe has been challenging. The good news is, we've landed on a format that we feel good about. The vibe will obviously be different from last year - less people, more spacing, a different menu, but there will still be excellent foods and libations, live music and a beautiful place to enjoy dinner.

In the next week or so we will put out more information regarding the dinners, how to make reservations, the flow of the evening, etc. Our musician lineup is finalized and posted on our website.

Please visit our website to join our newsletter to receive the latest updates.
Our first event is planned for July 3rd.
