Quality Products from People You Know … since 1980 and still growing!
The Belfast Farmers’ Market was established in 1980 to provide local small growers and craftsmen with an outlet for the sale of fresh picked produce and related agricultural products; to foster an appreciation for Maine’s rural resources; and to develop sources of marketing, management and agricultural information for its members. The Belfast Farmers’ Market functions as a non-profit membership organization that oversees the establishment of market guidelines, sets quality standards, promotes the market, and encourages growth of the local/regional food supply. All vendors must carry necessary and appropriate licenses and insurances.
Outdoor activity near the market: The Belfast Rail Trail on Passagassawakeag River starts in downtown Belfast. The old railbed trail is 2.3 miles long, constructed of crushed gravel suitable for walking or biking. At one end of the trail are vintage trains, & the other end connects to the Belfast Harbor Walk, including a scenic footbridge over the river. There’s plenty of wildlife to see along the trail, & busy harbor activity to see in town.
