The Farmers' Market Trail will be going through changes in 2020 as our markets decide what is best for them and their community at this time.
We are currently in the process of making changes to the website as things change daily!
The CT Department of Agriculture has issued a press release regarding Farmers' Markets in 2020.
Markets are able to stay open but with certain guidelines. Some have opted to open with special requirements, some have created virtual markets and some have chosen the option to close for 2020. Each market is finding ways to direct customers to buy directly from their vendors.
Visit their social media sites and websites for current updates on the status of the market while we continue to update ours.
Please SHOP LOCAL and support the growers, producers and artisans you know and love.
The shortest, safest steps for you food are local.
We created The Farmers’ Market Trail because we are passionate about local foods.
To make your visit to some fantastic farmers' markets even more enjoyable, this website serves as an insider's guide to things to do on market day at each locale, trending sharply toward the offbeat and unique.
Because farmers' market operate largely on cash, we have included a link to an ATM from a community bank or credit union, if there is one nearby.
Restaurants included on the Trail source some or even most of their ingredients from Connecticut farms.
Collaborating on this grassroots project are farmers, chefs, food producers, market organizers, handcraft artisans, and local, independent businesses.
