A Sunny Day At Newtown Farmers Market



Text Size

Under mostly sunny skies Tuesday, July 26, people perused the many vendor tents at Newtown Farmers Market. The popular destination for fresh produce and other local offerings is running Tuesdays through October 25 from 2 to 6:30 pm at Fairfield Hills.

This week marked the sixth week the market has been running, and featured the band Deputy Stems entertaining visitors as they sat under a tent enjoying the tunes or just taking a break from their shopping.

The Newtown Farmers Market is held rain or shine; however, it does close in extreme weather, such as high winds or thunderstorms.

The Newtown Farmers Market organizers are hoping the community will join in a new project this year: Sharing photos both on social media and with the market of their favorite things and moments while shopping at the market.

Residents who frequent the market are asked to take photos of “the things that make them happy there” and send those photos to the “newtown_ct_farmers_market “ Instagram account or Facebook page, facebook.com/farmersmarketatfairfieldhills.

People can also post photos to their own social media accounts and tag the Newtown Farmers Market accounts.
