Stonington Farmers Market
October 2 @ 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
The Stonington Farmers Market began in 1997 under the initiative of Geoffrey Little. The enormously popular market attracts residents from the Borough and surrounding communities who come to buy fresh, healthy, local food. In 2008 the Stonington Farmers Market became a year-round event, moving inside during the winter months. Items sold at the market include locally grown vegetables and fruits, jams, a variety of breads, pies and baked goods, cheese, eggs, poultry, meat, pork, fish, shrimp, scallops, Italian ices, maple syrup, honey, flowers and decorative plants. Thanks to greenhouses, our farmers offer fresh produce (including tomatoes!) throughout the winter. Our market offers whatever our farmers are harvesting each week as well as prepared foods such as pesto, salsa, pot pies, soups and stews.
In addition to great food, a different craft vendor is featured each week at the market. Among the hand-made items you’ll find are beautiful molded beeswax candles, pottery, jewelry, wooden bowls, soaps, painted signs, printed fabrics and scarves.
