We were notified this morning that this coming week will be the last week for Suecakes in your Co-op. We’re not sure yet what the future will bring for her bakery items but please find her post below for more info.
I would like to start off by personally thanking every. single. one. that has ever been curious, hungry, or tempted enough to step into my bakery juice bar. It has been your support in the bizarre yet delicious creations I’ve made there that has kept it – and my vision, as crazy as it may have been – going so long. I would also like to give a huge shout-out to my amazing staff for their dedication and hard work helping me along the way….COULD NOT have done it without you!!!! It is my deep regret to announce that I will be closing the storefront in beautiful downtown Belfast, Maine.
I will do my best to keep regular hours this coming week, but this is the final full week and my apologies for the short notice. If there is enough interest, I will open once more on Valentine’s Day, Thursday February 14th….so please let me know!
I have worked so hard, given all that I had, and sacrificed so much through the years building what this business has become – I am extremely thankful for everything! – and so I truly feel this is not the end. suecakes! will manifest in another magically wonderous way, but for now, I need time to rest and refill myself before moving forward in the next venture, whatever it may be. So please continue to follow this format for any upcoming news or events. This is a very tender time for me and again THANK YOU doesn’t sound like enough but I guess it will have to do for now. Best Wishes! ….til next time.
Any gift certificates still out there, please stop by, call (207-218-1031) or email firstname.lastname@example.org to settle those up asap. @ Suecakes
You may have noticed that one of our regular volunteers (Lizzie) will not be available for bit on Tuesdays. She is expecting and will be going out on maternity leave probably in the next month or so. That means the Co-op is looking for a few good folks to fill in for a bit while she is away on Tuesday afternoons. If you have any interested/willingness to cover an afternoon shift on Tuesdays until she is able to return please email email@example.com or stop in the Co-op!
We also have some new items that came into the Co-op this week so here is the list!
- Native Coconut Milk (Org)(we haven’t been able to get the Natural Value Brand for a bit so we are subbing this in)
- Sno Pac Frozen Raspberries (Org)(Customer Request)
- Betterlife Unscented Laundry Soap (Member Request)
- Small Tapioca Pearls (Customer Request)
and now for the Vino
- Le Hauts De Legarde Bordeux (Org)
- Tarantas Tempranillo (Org)

If you are a local producer or farmer it’s just about time for the Annual Farmer & Grower Potluck put on by the Waldo County Cooperative Extension! The presentation this year is by Glen Koehler of the Umaine Extension regarding Farm Response to Changing Weather. So bring some food and listen to an important topic.
We have been notified by Toddy Pond Farm that they are currently in the process of drying out their herd. This is a very important step in the lactation cycle of a dairy cow but also means their yogurt will not be available for a bit. Right now it looks like end of February to early March before it’s return. We’ll let everyone know as we have more info!
We thought we’d pass along that one of our Maine vendors, Chow Maine, who provide us with grab and go asian food was the answer to a game show question on national TV!
So just a few new items on the shelf this week. If there is something you are looking for please let us know and we’ll do our best to get it!
- Old Haven Black Garlic (Chelsea, Maine. If you’ve never tried it I think it is quite tasty)
- Dr Mcdougal Teriyaki Noodle Cup (Customer Request)
- Organic Cotton Balls (Member Request)
- Organic Cotton Swabs
- Organic Cotton Rounds
- Frey Natural Red Bled
We wanted to let you know we are opening a few minutes late today due to our morning volunteer needing to wait for her kids to go to school (there was a two hour delay due to road conditions). Sorry for any inconvenience.
