Farmersâ Market Returns
Â On Tuesdays In Sandy Hook
The annual Sandy Hook Organic Farmersâ Market will be opening Tuesday, July 6, in the parking lot and field behind St Johnâs Episcopal Church on Washington Avenue. Hours will be from 9 am to 2 pm.
âWe decided to keep the market open a little later to accommodate people who have their lunch hour from 1 to 2 pm,â said market organizer Mary Fellows.
Several area farmers will be back contributing fruits and vegetables grown without the use of pesticides or insecticides, and others will offer baked goods made from natural ingredients and without the use of chemical preservatives.
âThere will be more bakers, more crafters,â Ms Fellows promised. âThe breakfast and lunch cafÃ© will be back. Pony rides also will be back, from 11 am to 1 pm.â
Among the farmers will be Shorttâs Farm of Sandy Hook, Fort Hill Farm of New Milford, Shaker Organics of Woodbury, and Moonshadow Farm of Southbury. New among the crafters will be Bears Hill Pottery and Topaz Art Studio, both of Newtown. Bittersweet Ridge of Bridgewater also will be among the new vendors.
âThis year it will be farmersâ market in the round because we have a new field,â Ms Fellows said. âWe took out the mound â flattened it â so there is much more room and the walk from the parking lot is shorter.â
The Sandy Hook Organic Farm Market will be open every Tuesday through October.
