Welcome Back Bath Farmers Market!

Already into our 3rd market of the season and we are delighted with the response from the vendors and the community. All the efforts from the summer are really making a difference. The space is brighter, more festive and the Kennebec views more abundant. The space is warmer with less air infiltration and the floor is much more level. A central space was created so the music can be enjoyed by all. The prep "kitchen" with new ceilings and a fresh coat of paint is a cheerful place for the vendors and volunteers to find a cup of coffee. Last but not least, the sunny community room is now a welcoming home base for EBT and Market Tokens, exhibits about the Freight Shed and for community groups: first up is the Bath Forestry Committee's Annual Photography Exhibit November 16th!




We thank all the volunteers and supporters for making this happen!

Paint a sidewalk

Starting at 10AM on Saturday October 26th we'll be painting a sidewalk on Commercial Street, in the same location as future brick side walk. Making this path in the current roadway will help make space for pedestrians. The public is welcome to join us in this painting project. Bring your brushes, light colored, acrylic paints (nice way to use those random left overs) and wear your painting cloths. Please let us know if you plan to attend.

Freight Shed Fourth and Final Full Moon Dinner – A blend of Greece & Italy!

A full moon once again was present at the Bath Freight Shed Alliance’s fourth Full Moon Dinner fundraiser.

Chef Tim O'Brien of Trattoria Athena in Brunswick provided a gathering of some fifty guests with a very memorable meal in an welcoming setting with the Freight Shed’s open sliding riverside doors bringing in light from the full moon.



The hors d’oeuvres were delicate small savoy cabbages stuffed with Arborio rice, whiting, monkfish, dill and lemon and mushroom crostini, made with crimini mushrooms, cipollini and goat cheese – both savory and delicious.

Chef O'Brien then followed with a tri-colored bean salad, combining yellow beans with red onion, garlic chips, cheese, arugula, heirloom tomato blended with an almond dressing.

These delectable harbingers led perfectly to the main courses – a meat lasagna with layers of fresh pasta, ricotta cheese, pork and leek soubise ‘besciamella’ and a vegetarian lasagna with layers of fresh pasta, roasted butternut and delicata squash, mascarpone and ricotta cheeses and leek sourbise ‘besciamella’.






Duca corvine/cabernet wine, Gritty’s IPA beer and Now You’re Cooking's sparkling water complimented the food delights.

A tart apple crisp with ouzo and whipped crème and savory coffee completed the highly satisfying offering.

In keeping with the Freight Shed policy of supporting local and healthy food, Chef O'Brien sourced food for the meal from: 







Music was provided by Married with Chitlins. Co-founder of the Freight Shed, Wiebke Theodore exhibited a series of her acrylic abstract paintings, many of which are of scenes at the Wooden Boat School, which will continued through the month.

A wonderful meal, great guests, and good fun, all in support of the Bath Freight Shed and its programs.

To view the entire photo album of the final Full Moon Dinner, please visit our Facebook Page here!

The Bath Freight Shed Alliance is a non profit organization whose mission includes preservation of the Bath Freight Shed as a community facility, working closely with joint tenant Maine First Ship to promote various programs involving preservation, food, health, the arts, education, local history and environmental sustainability.

Full Moon Art Show featuring the evocative photography of Johannah Harkness.

Old Saw in Freight Shed
Johannah Harkness
The Bath Freight Shed Alliance invites you to join them on August 16 from 6 to 7 PM to open an exhibit of the evocative photography of Johannah Harkness. The show will be open Saturday 8/17 from 9 to 12 PM.



My Trip Abroad
Johannah Harkness
Johannah has been enthralled since the age of six with the magic of the camera image and the power of creation.. Her work ranges from literal portraits to narrative and allegorical works. Her recent work includes several images of the Freight Shed , which she first visited last summer. "I was instantly drawn to the type of eerily beautiful light there that often seeps into and haunts venerable spaces.…out of this came the inspiration for work that will be featured during the August Full Moon Dinner," says Harkness. A private showing will be part of the celebration at the Dinner on August 20 (the dinner is sold out).

A portion of the proceeds from the show will be donated to the Freight Shed.

Sandra Garson offers her cookbook in support of the Freight Shed: winter home of the Bath Farmers Market!

Sandra Garson, a journalist, farmers market advocate who is passionate about food and Maine will be on hand and offering the Second Edition of her popular cookbook How to Fix a Leek & Other Food from Your Farmers' Market for $20 as a fundraiser for the Freight Shed. 


During the Full Moon Dinner on July 22nd,  Sandra will be available to sign and personalize the copies and will slip in a copy of a knock out new birthday cake recipe. We will also take orders for the cookbook through the month of July. A copy of it will be on view at the Freight Shed along with a sign up list.

Yum!
Garson’s food essays have been published in Downeast Magazine, Yankee, Radcliffe Culinary Times, the New Fillmore, and Tricycle, the Buddhist quarterly. Garson is an adviser to the Himalayan Pantry in New York, former owner of Tastewrights Catering in Brunswick and sold baked goods at the Brunswick Farmers' Market during the 1985 season.

In How to Fix a Leek, Sandra Garson answers the most common questions posed to Maine farmers at their markets: What is this? How long will you have it? Can I store it? What will I do with it? This easy-to-read, comprehensive guide includes uses for the marvels the farmers produce and carefully chosen, quick step-by-step recipes-taking full advantage of local flavor-so your meals are as memorable as Maine.

Freight Shed opening Full Moon Dinner fundraiser a howling success!

For the opening of its Full Moon Dinners, the Bath Freight Shed Alliance kicked off its ‘Good Food’ summer season with a four course meal prepared by Chef Aaron Park of Henry & Marty’s of Brunswick on Sunday, June 23rd at the Freight Shed. Some fifty guests joined in the event and despite the furtiveness of the ‘full moon’, Chef Park’s offerings were truly exceptional.

The hors d’oeuvres plate featured a smooth but crunchy chicken liver pate, sharp goat chorizo and a wonderful vegetable pate accompanied by pickled spring onions, chèvre and a delicious organic carrot and beet blend with caramelized spring onions and cashews. A perfect harbinger of good things to follow!

After a plated salad with farmers’ market greens, fresh mozzarella, hakeuri turnips, and  kohlrabi enhanced by a smooth fresh herb vinaigrette, Chef Park provide an entrée of rhubarb maple roasted chicken, a slow roasted brisket, chunky but smooth, balanced with a rhubarb BBQ sauce, Heiwa tofu, Jacob’s Cattle Bean cassoulet, la ratte potatoes and chanterelle mushrooms with sugar snap peas in a honey glaze. The entrée  was absolutely delicious with varying textures, colors and tastes.

A strawberry rhubarb desert with a granola crisp with yogurt whipped cream topping followed by coffee completed a highly varied yet very satisfying meal.

A selection of three mead wines provided by Rob Nicholl of Fiddler’s Reach, served Merrymeeting with the hors d’oeuvres, a light crisp wine from wildflowers and wild raspberry blossoms; accompanying the entrée was a dry red mead wine Wild Blue, a blend of dry blueberries and blueberry blossom honey and lastly with desert, Soft Southerly, made from Leatherwood flower honey, distinguished by its cinnamon spiciness.

Chef Aaron Park selecting the ingredients for the feast!
Chef Park sourced most of the food from local farms and food producers, most of whom participate in the Bath Farmer’s Market at the Freight Shed.

Local artist Maina Handmaker exhibited her work in the Freight Shed Community Room, with a number of items being sold and the proceeds shared with the Freight Shed and Maina.

Thank you Chef Aaron Park and everyone that pitched in for a great Full Moon Summer Celebration Kick Off!

AmeriCorps NCCC Team Buffalo 1 -- Thank YOU!




A huge THANK YOU to the amazing AmeriCorps NCCC Team Buffalo 1

This group of young people (ages 18-24 ) arrived at the Freight Shed early Saturday in the pouring rain and after an introduction to the history of the place and what's happening here, they dug in! 

Painting, cleaning, organizing, cleaning the Virginia model, building shelving, and moving a huge block of white oak, fresh from Higmo's Sawmill. Maine's First Ship and the Bath Freight Shed Alliance could not be more thrilled.

This AmeriCorps team comes from all over the country: Washington, Colorado, Maryland, Texas and more and has formed a really cohesive group. It was great to see how they support each other and are super problem solvers. They seemed truly interested in this place and what we are doing. The cold temperatures and grey skies could not dampen their spirits!

We hope to welcome AmeriCorps back again and if we are really lucky we will have a longer term AmeriCorps member here at the Freight Shed it the future! 

With some fuel, in the form of warm sticky buns Aaron Park baked, this group was a whirlwind!

Thank you for making the Mayfair Yard sale a resounding success!


A huge THANK YOU to Maine's First Ship (MFS) and Gayla Teague, Joanne Luneau and Merry Chapin for their tremendous generosity in running the May Fair Yard Sale!

The Winter Season at the Freight Shed is a Wrap!


Join us this Saturday, April 27th, as we celebrate a great winter season at the Freight Shed. 


Thanks to the Bath Farmers Market for their faith in this project and to all the customers new and old who made this place such a vibrant fun place to be on Saturday mornings.

Thanks to all the community partners and artists who shared their work with us in the community room and thank you to all the musicians who serenaded us!

Thanks to all the volunteers who spruced up the place, added layers of insulation in various forms, thanks to the board members who work so hard to make this venture viable and something that can be sustained and an extra special thank you to Jay Coffey who saw the sunrise every Saturday for six months to get the space heated up and ready for the day and would be at the Freight Shed at a moments notice to help out!

This weekend we wrap up the season with an exhibit of Keith Spiro's photographs of the Goranson Farm. We are so grateful to the farmers and food producers for all their hard hard work that fuels this community. Keith's photographs connect us with the beauty of the place and the people.

What a Difference a Year Makes! Kickstarter Update #16 · Apr 19, 2013





Greetings Freight Shed Friends!

In two weeks, the Bath Farmers Market will move outside for the "summer" season. Hard to imagine since the temps in the morning still hover around freezing!

Thanks to your generous support the Freight Shed has become a real hub of activity this winter. Not only as home to the Bath Farmers Market but also as a place for beekeepers, artists, 4th grade composters, musicians, boat builders, rag rug makers, 4 H Clubs, neighbors to share their work and ideas. Vendors arrived in smaller vehicles because their set ups could stay in place and the easy access meant they could arrive later. People walked to the market and then spent time on our main street. The downtown businesses noticed the difference. Due to the market so many more people saw the potential of this place holds for the community.

We submitted our 501 (c) 3 application and we are actively seeking charter members and volunteers. Our next steps include repairing the exterior, installing a sprinkler system and kitchen. We plan on doing much of this work with volunteer and student help. The city will be building a side walk in front of the building that will be extra wide and provide plenty of space for bike racks as well a great social space to enjoy the west light. In January we got the City's permission to sell engraved bricks that will be installed in front of the Freight Shed. This will to help us fund the repairs!

Record breaking snow storms and cold temps did not stop our first season from being a huge success. We look forward to a summer with a Full Moon Dinner Series, music, boat building and lots of hands-on building repairs.

Your participation made it happen and we can't thank you enough!

Wiebke

    Useful Resources to Green your Lifestyle

    Did you know that you can do away with the commercial household cleaning products that contain harsh chemicals with everyday products you you may already have in your kitchen? You knew folks did this but didn't know which product to use for carpet stains? Laundry detergent? Well there's a website you can access through the National Resources Council of Maine, titled "Toxic-free Maine" with a handy-dandy brochure available to help guide you through as you green up your life!


    Here's a brief PSA from the WCLZ Green Team Minute on the subjecthttp://989wclz.com/green-team/safetly-clean-those-muddy-carpets/


    Composting

    Some of us do it, some don't, but many of us want to but either don't have the space in our yards or the time. Well there's a new service called Garbage to Garden that simplifies it all for you.
    Here's a snippet describing Garbage to Garden but please visit their website to learn more.
    Stop contributing to landfills and start composting, with Garbage to Garden, where your kitchen scraps are recycled -- your participation helps us to support schools, gardens, and the environment.

    The waste you recycle with Garbage to Garden is used to renew our soils, and to generate green electricity through anaerobic digestion technology, with no harmful byproducts.
    JOIN THE MOVEMENT!
