Welcome back to the Monroe Farmers’ Market! We’ve missed you.
The volunteers of the market have worked very hard this off-season to bring you a great market experience this year.
We’re happy to introduce four new vendors who have joined the market. Three Bridges Coffee Shop from Shelton will offer hot and iced coffee and lemonade, muffins, cookies, quiches and breads. This N’ That Catering of Trumbull will provide ready to eat meals that include a variety of freshly made meatballs, fresh pasta, and sauces. Vic’s Guac Shop also of Shelton will be serving up freshly made guacamole. And for our furry friends, Best Buddies Biscuits of New Haven will provide biscuits, chews and jerky made from really wholesome ingredients. As with all our market vendors, these offerings are made with select locally sourced ingredients. For more information on these and all our vendors please our website for a complete vendor list.
In addition to our farmers and vendors you’ll find lots of family fun at the market this year. We’ll be hosting an Open Mic Night in July, our annual Back to School Bash in August, a Harvest Festival in September and pumpkin decorating for the kids in October, just to name a few. New events and programs are added to the schedule each week, so be sure to keep an eye on our website and social media pages to get the latest updates and details on all events and special programming. You can find links to all market social media in the footer below.
Let’s make this a safe market season too. Market popularity has grown and we anticipate there will be many people attending this year. Here’s what you can do to help us keep it safe for everyone: Please use caution when crossing the streets surrounding the green. These are main roads with lots of fast moving traffic. And, please be mindful of parking restrictions around the green. There are a few spaces around the green that are marked for use by town agencies and employees. Please don’t park in these spaces, even if it's just for a few minutes. And, never, at anytime is parking permitted on the green. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
See you at the market!
