Yellow Birch Farm, Lucy’s Granola, JC Turnings and Daily Bread are also be in Bangor (hope we’re not forgetting anyone).

Saturday’s event was a rousing success and today’s promises to be even better. So support Maine’s small businesses and farms by starting your holiday shopping at the Maine Harvest Festival.

It goes from 10 am to 4 pm at the Cross Insurance Center at 515 Maine Street in Bangor. There are 150 vendors — you can’t help but find that perfect holiday gift.

Where to Get 44 North Coffee (and Gear) in the Winter


Ah, the good old days of summer

If you’re addicted to the 44 North Coffee at the Stonington Farmers Market or at the Stonington cafe, take heart.

Though the coffee shop in Stonington is closed for the winter, you can still get 44 North Coffee in the Roastery at the Seamark building in Deer Isle Village. They’ll be open on Saturdays during the winter from 8 a.m. until Noon. Best yet, Tinder Hearth pastry will be available.


So sad.

If you aren’t familiar with 44 North, here’s how they describe themselves:

44 North Coffee was born in 2010 on a small island off the coast of Maine.  Founded on the principle that fresh and ethically sourced coffee sips best, we custom roast 100% Arabica coffee beans in the upstairs of the historic Deer Isle schoolhouse.  We honor the hard work of the farmers who grow our coffee by fairly purchasing seasonal organic beans and we roast to levels that highlight the best tasting notes in each cup.  Enjoy at your own line of latitude!

If you’re looking for a holiday gift for a coffee lover, 44 North offers plenty of options. There’s a coffee club subscription for $366 with a choice of Blonde Pearl Espresso Blend, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia – Yirgacheffe, Guatemala, Honduras Decaf, Honey Process Honduras, Peru, Royal Tar Blend or Sumatra.

Or consider coffee gear, from a $115 Bodum Burr Grinder to a $10 canvas tote bag — and you can shop online! Just click here. Brewing devices are tried and tested every day at 44 North’s coffee lab.  Shoulder bags are crafted by Holly Mead (in the very same building where they receive and roast these fine coffees) and Audrey Yankielun of Massachusetts (who has a wicked talent for sewing and strong family ties to Deer Isle).

You can keep up with Melissa Rafferty and Megan Wood by checking in with their blog postings on their website.

Wakeup Call

Start your Stonington Farmers Market shopping experience with a hot (or cold!) cup of 44 North Coffee. Just look for the long line at the bottom of the hill any Friday from 10AM to Noon. And ask about their music and events nights at their 44 North cafe in downtown Stonington, too!

End of the Line

Heading over to the Stonington Farmers Market last Friday from 10AM to Noon and saw this looooong line. What the heck is at the end of it, I thought to myself…
Turns out it was just what I was looking for: 44 North Coffee beautifully displayed and perfectly chilled for a warm summer’s day. Worth waiting in line for!

Looking for something fun to do this Saturday? Stonington Farmers Market vendors Melissa and Meghan of 44 North Coffee invite you to a Coffee & Beer Launch Party on July 5th from 5:30-8:30PM at their 11 Church Street location in Deer Isle Village. There will be pizza from Uproot Pie Co. and ice cream from Stone Fox Creamery (a former vendor with our market last summer). What a great way to keep the holiday weekend going!

44 North Available Tomorrow (Yay!)

Just a head’s up that 44 North Coffee will be at the Stonington Farmers Market tomorrow from 10Am to Noon, but in ‘reduced’ format. Our kind neighbors, Tinder Hearth, will be selling for us and they’ll have the old fashioned ironing board set up for self-serve hot coffee. Afew bags of fresh roasted organic beans will be available for sale, but for a larger selection of beans head on up Rt. 15 to Seamark. Many thanks for your support and an outstanding summer season!
