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.

This Week at the Market....

FIRE FLOWER GARDEN

I don't have the roses, but I do have the tall white bellflower ! Tall, indescribably beautiful. Get your plants now in time to bloom in your garden with the roses. 


DICKEY HILL FARM

Peas, carrots, beets, zucchini and chard! Harvest days are finally starting to feel like summer days here at Dickey Hill Farm as crops finally got a chance to bask in some warm sunny days last week. This time of year is always exciting as each new week brings a few new crops to the harvest list and our nightly cooking routine gets a bit more interesting!  

APPLETON CREAMERY

Have you tried our Camdenbert with Energy gems? It’s a match made in heaven! Pick some up this week for your picnic! We make it from both goats milk and cows milk. A simple summer treat. 

TODDY POND FARM

This Friday is our first Grill & Chill event. Click the image below to learn more.
