IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE BELFAST FARMERS' MARKET - PLEASE READ

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.

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.

APPLETON CREAMERY

Just a quick reminder that you can preorder your cheese for a speedy pick up at market: https://appleton-creamery2020.square.site
Don’t see what you want to order? Drop me an email: appletoncreamery@gmail, and I can send you an electronic invoice. Touchless!
Many of our cheeses are weighed and priced individually, so can’t be listed on Square.
Please order as early as possible, as I can’t pack orders after 4 on Thursday.

We’ll have Granite Kiss logs back this week! As well as a freshly cut Gurneytown Gouda with toasted cumin seeds, and our ever-popular Jack.
Supply chain issues with cow milk deliveries caused a delay in production of hard cheeses, so there will be a gap in availability of dill Havarti.


We are working overtime to launch our new mail order service, as well as a cheese plate to go that will be available at the farm stand only. Stay tuned!

And one last reminder that May is American Cheese Month! What better way to celebrate than to hit the Midcoast Cheese Trail, and visit the animals that make the milk. www.midcoastcheesetrail.com
See you at market, or on the Trail!

TODDY POND FARM

Some of you may not have seen our newsletter post from last week - so here it is again. If you did - apologies for the duplication.

Here's an image gallery of some of what we have available for pre-order, for pick up at the Friday market and at our our farm store in Monroe.

Click the button below to visit our online store.
*please note some offerings are only available for farm store pre-orders or on Saturdays from 8 am to 5 pm.



Our farm store is open on Saturdays from 8 am to 5 pm.

Fresh baked sourdough available in our farm store on Saturdays by 9:30 am - get there early if you want some - it sells out fast!!

We hope you will consider coming out to our farm store on Saturdays to enjoy a safe and fun shopping experience. The road to the farm is in great shape and we are just 15 minutes outside of Belfast - Google Maps will get you right here.

We are limiting the number of shoppers to one group (2 adults) at a time and sanitizing surfaces between customer visits. Shoppers are not required to wear masks - we leave that decision up to you.

It is incredibly encouraging to see the number of folks from our community making the extra effort to shop local and support small Maine farms, and we sincerely hope this trend continues. We want to be your farmers!

Be Well - Greg & Heide
