If you’ve ever shopped at more than one farmers’ market, you’ve come to realize that no two are exactly the same—they are as diverse as varieties of heirloom tomatoes. Each market differs in its size, location, hours, vendor makeup, operating structure, and budget and each must be mindful of federal, state and local regulations. Every decision that’s made about that market likely takes all of these factors into account. There’s a lot to think about even in the best of times and this season is unprecedented for us. We realize that it’s entirely our responsibility to think about all of these things so that each week, you can enjoy the farmers’ market for what it is—a community-building event that supports Connecticut agricultural producers and local businesses. We support them so that they can bring fresh, locally produced goods directly to you. Just leave the hard parts to us!
The Monroe Farmers' Market is open June–October and offers fresh, locally-grown produce, baked goods, prepared foods and hand-crafted specialty foods to Connecticut locals.
