9/28/2017 - Local Children's Book Author and Illustrator at the Southbury Farmers’ Market

The Southbury Farmers’ Market is pleased to announce that local children’s author and illustrator Sara Beth Videtto will be visiting the Farmers’ Market on October 5th from 3-6 pm. Ms. Videtto, a mom and Southbury resident, has just released her first book: Turtle’s First Winter. As a former K-3 teacher Sara loves helping children learn a love of reading and discovering the world around them. There will be a reading of Turtle’s First Winter during three story times at the market on October 5 at 3:30, 4:30, and 5:30. Ms. Videtto will be available throughout the market to sign copies of Turtle’s First Winter. Books will also be available for purchase.

Farmers that are participating at the market are: Mitchell Farm from Southbury with vegetables and fruit, Stoneledge Hollow Farm from Southbury with bath salts, dog biscuits, jams, jellies and organic eggs. Sunrise Sunset Farm of Bethlehem with all sorts of veggies and the most wonderful garlic you’ve ever tasted. Goatboy Soaps of New Milford with wonderful soap and body products. Daffodil Hill Growers of Southbury will be bringing their veggies, fruit, and honey. Averill Farm from Washington will be bringing their famous cider donuts along with pies using seasonal fruit, jams, dog biscuits, some gluten free cookies, peaches and apples. Sonny’s Grinders features Asian Style grinders that can be eaten at the market or taken home to enjoy. Wave Hill Bread will be offering many different styles of their award winning bread. Eagle Wood Farm of Barkhamsted offers all natural pork, beef and eggs. Oronoque Farms Bakery of Shelton features fresh baked pies in two sizes along with cookies. New to the market this season is Little Farm on Main from Bethlehem with goat cheese, goats milk yogurt, and sauces. The Southbury based musical duo Good Medicine RX will be performing at the market that day as well.

On October 5th and every week the market features a cooking demonstration and samples of what items are local and fresh that day along with live music. The Southbury Farmers’ Market is producer only, so the farmer that is selling the veggies is also the farmer that grew the product or specialty food maker that made what you are buying.

This project was funded in part by matching funds from the Connecticut Department of Agriculture through the Community Investment Act, 05-228.
