in a great community environment

It’s a fun & welcoming community event, every week. The Belmont Farmers' Market is more than great local food. Come for a friendly community event, with Storytime, performances for kids and grownups, community information, and chats with friends and neighbors – rain or shine.

We match government benefits to help all families take home great, local food: SNAP (Food Stamps), WIC (for moms & babies) and FMNP (for seniors). Most of our produce vendors accept HIP.

Our own resident magician, Ryan Lally, will be with us!  Ryan has been performing at the market since he was a young teen.  He’s now a professional magician.  He mesmerizes his audience, both young and old, bringing classical magic into the modern age with humor and aplomb.

Belmont center merchants


Many of the merchants in the Center partner with us. Some restaurants buy ingredients from our vendors, while others offer tastings or display their wares at the market.

And the food!


“Good bread, excellent heirloom tomatoes, and magical lettuce that never goes bad.

My latest discovery is rainbow chard. I was intimidated by chard (it looks like something only very adventurous vegans would eat) - but I asked one of the women at the stand what to do with it. She instructed me to saute it like spinach with garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. I added in a vidalia onion and some tilapia - and I have never been happier!”
