This season marks the eleventh year of the Southbury Farmers’ Market offering fresh and locally made and grown food. In its inaugural year the farmer’s market had just a few participating vendors and the product offerings were limited to vegetables and goats’ milk soap. The market now has over 15 weekly vendors along with some others that rotate on a weekly basis. The Farmers’ Market continues to expand its roster of vendors on its way to becoming a one-stop shopping experience. The roster of returning vendors are: Sonny’s Asian Grinders, a Southbury based food truck that will have sandwiches to be eaten at the market or taken home. For vegetables and fruits the market will feature Mitchell Farm, Sunrise Sunset Farm, Stoneledge Hollow Farm, Averill Farm and Daffodil Hill Growers. The Olive Oil Factory, Little Farm on Main LLC and Wave Hill Breads will fill the olive oil, bread and cheese category. South Ridge Farms will offer fresh cut bouquets for sale, while Goatboy Soaps will have their all natural goats’ milk soap along with this seasons baby goats to visit with. Eaglewood Farm will be bringing their all natural pork products and eggs. Oronoque Farms will provide delicious pies and cookies. New to the market this season will be Bees Knees Ice Pops, with all natural artisan made sweet treats. Returning after a hiatus is the wildly popular Hardcore Sweet Cupcakes truck.
The Southbury Farmers’ Market will kick off the season June 21, 2018 and run every Thursday from 3:00 to 6:00 pm on the Green at the Southbury Town Hall, 501 Main Street South, Southbury, CT.

The Southbury Farmers’ Market is producer only, all vendors and farmers are directly involved with growing or producing the item that they are selling. Buying directly from our vendors and farmers guarantees fresh quality produce and educates patrons by teaching how food is raised and why that is important. Join us on June 21st and visit the market on Thursdays to support your local grower and food artisans. Remember that dollars spent at the market are dollars invested in the community; your support of the market supports our local farmers. Come out and visit the Market, we look forward to seeing you!
