Market Day at the Freight Shed

The turnout Saturday at the Freight Shed was fantastic. The vendors remarked that they saw many new faces. The place hummed with
activity - great local food, music, views of the Virginia taking shape and discussions of farmland protection. One might have thought the farmers market had been taking place here for over a hundred years. This test run made it clear how well the Bath Freight Shed, located in the heart of the downtown, is suited for this kind of activity. Here are some comments we got: The Winter Farmers Market was wonderful. I feel a zing in the air. We loved it, Great event, lovely location and lots of productive conversations. I thought it went super well. Feed back from customers was great. They really want us to be there. Bath is a happening place.

Bath Farmers Martket at the Freight Shed Oct.29th

Come and support the GOAL of a weekly, year round farmer’s market downtown on Bath’s waterfront.

There is much to be done before the Freight Shed is ready to be the winter home for the market – but the vendors would like to use this one day harvest market to get the community involved in making it happen.

The winter market and Maine’s First Ship summer boat building program can dovetail to keep commercial street active year round. Come to the market on October 29th and learn about KELT, our local land trust, and the preservation effort of the historic Freight Shed.

There will be Music, Cider, Bicycle and Valet parking and most importantly Veggies, Coffee, Pies, Cheese, Hummus, Pork, Sesame Noodles, Cranberries, Chicken, Beef, Apples, Mushrooms, Bread and your support for the Bath Farmers Market who do so much for our community !! Shop generously and thank them.

8:30 –12:00 27 Commercial Street the Freight Shed
