East Hartford, CT—The Town of East Hartford is excited to announce that the annual farmers’ market will begin Friday, July 9th.

Area farmers will be offering Connecticut-grown fresh fruits and vegetables every Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Raymond Memorial Library at 840 Main St. through October 29th

“The farmers’ market is a valuable asset to our community and it is a great way to get locally-grown produce, while supporting Connecticut farms and agriculture,” said Mayor Marcia Leclerc.

Under Connecticut farm fresh regulations, the East Hartford Farmers’ Market is only allowed to sell Connecticut-grown fresh fruits and vegetables. The farmers’ market provides a benefit for both farmers and residents.  Participating farmers are able to sell their fresh fruits and vegetables while marketing their farm to members of the community; residents benefit from a variety of fresh produce at a reasonable price while supporting local agriculture.

The East Hartford Farmers’ Market is affiliated with the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Farmers’ Market Coupon Program. WIC clients interested in obtaining farmers’ market coupons can contact the WIC department at 860-528-1458 extension 1.

The Farmers’ Market is sponsored by East Hartford Health Department and East Hartford Public Library.  Each week, a variety of organizations will be present at the market to offer health and educational services for residents of all ages, and the library will run outdoor programs on selected Fridays.
