Summer is almost upon us and farmers across Connecticut are gearing up to share their local produce, dairy, breads and more with hungry locavores at weekly farmer’s markets. Make sure to stop at the ATM on your way because most of the merchants only take cash. Vendors sell products that are grown or made in Connecticut. The Southbury Farmer's Market is "Producer Only" which means each farmer you speak to is the one who actually grew or made the product.
Many of the markets have live music, children’s entertainment, special events and guest speakers. Many of the stands only take cash for cheek for payment. Check your local market’s page for detailed information.
Southbury’s seasonal farmer’s market kicks off on June 19, 2014 and runs every Thursday from 3:00-6:00 p.m. from June through October. Located at the Southbury Town Hall, 501 Main Street, the market is a popular destination for families. This year’s vendors include:
