CAROL'S COLLECTIBLES

One More Time At Market This Fall Lots Of Fall Color and Best Time To Plant!




 
YUM BUS & ENCHANTED KITCHEN AT FIRE FLY FARM

YumBus will be having their seasonal favorite crêpes- fresh organic peaches, yogurt, maple and whip cream and the blueberry maple ricotta- all Maine, all fresh ingredients!  We make a gluten free and vegan batter also.  All of the vegetables for our savory crêpes are coming from our organic farm this bountiful time of year.  Stock up on bakery goodies and hummus from Enchanted Kitchen at Fire Fly Farm- we won’t be at Market on the 20th due to being at the Common Ground Country Fair!
See you at Market!

FIRE FLOWER GARDEN & POTTERY

Dahlias are putting on an amazing show right now, as are the zinnias, 
but the weather is cooling down and the end (frost) could come at any 
time. Get your brilliant flower fix this week before they are all gone 
until next year.

I will also have a quantity of landscape size ( and smaller) daffodil 
bulbs. They will take a year or two to really bloom well, but then, look 
out!

Belfast Farmers' Market Needs Your Help!

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY
Do you have 2 hours available on an occasional Friday morning?
Do you want to support the markets' efforts to provide low-income shoppers with access to local food? Perhaps you appreciate the convenience of having the option to use your credit card at market? Maybe you just enjoy and value the Belfast Farmers' Market community and would be willing to give us an extra hand.  We are looking for a few additional volunteers to staff the market info booth this summer. Currently, we have a fabulous group of volunteers who tirelessly show up every Friday morning and work 2-4 hour shifts at the info booth, but we need more help for the bustling summer months. Volunteer duties include: welcoming shoppers, providing EBT/SNAP and credit card customers with clipboards for shopping, adding up shopping sheets, swiping customer cards on the markets' wireless machine, distributing Maine Harvest Bucks and answering general questions about the market.
No experience necessary, just a friendly and positive attitude.
Contact Marcia at Peacemeal Farm (peacemealfarm@gmail.com) for more details.
MAINE HARVEST BUCKS UPDATE
We just received an update from the Maine Federation of Farmers' Markets, the organization that manages the Maine Harvest Bucks program.
Now that the funding from the USDA FINI grant has been confirmed for the next three years, we will be handing out new vouchers.
We will also be able to accept vouchers with the 3/31/2019 expiration date
anytime through 2021!
