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.

Dear Freight Shed Friends!

We are so thankful to everyone who helped us make great progress at the Freight Shed this summer season! That support came in many forms including attendance at wonderful events! Now we are in the final 2 weeks of getting ready for the Winter Farmers Market Season and we would be thrilled to have you join us even for an hour or so!

If you are available for any of these times please let us know, or if another time works better for you  we can make the arrangements. It is important to confirm because we need to have enough people on hand to make it work!!

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.
