The Greenwich Farmers’ Market provides guests with locally grown produce from 14+ farms. Farmers travel from as far as Lyme and Glastonbury to sell the freshest produce available.
The Greenwich Farmers’ Market has been in existence in the Arch Street/Horseneck Lane commuter lot for over 25 years. It is a meeting place for Greenwich residents, as well as neighbors from adjoining towns in Connecticut and Westchester County. Many of the vendors have been coming down since its inception. We have met children in strollers, and celebrated their graduations from high school and college with them.
Offerings include beef from Four Mile River Farm, and fresh lamb products, as well as poultry, beef, and prepared foods from Sankow’s Farms. There are honey, maple syrup and eggs from Sugar Maple Farm in Lebanon.The line is always long by Woodlawn Farm, especially when the berries and peaches are available. In the fall, they have apples, apple cider, and pears.
Farms bringing down locally grown produce include Smith Acres, Oxen Hill Farm, Riverbank Farm, and Farming 101. Some of these farms are certified organic. Besides fresh produce, Plasko’s Farm also provides their very popular apple cider donuts, and freshly baked breads.
To round out the offerings at the market, we have hydroponically-grown greens from Two Guys from Woodbridge, clams and oysters from Norm Bloom and Sons. For the grow-your-own customer Moorefield Farm has tomato, vegetable, and herb plants, along with some perennials and succulents. Market Master Judy Waldeyer, owner of The Herb Basket, provides a variety of jams, relishes, pickles, and more.
Customers flock to Roses for Autism to bring home a bouquet of roses or lilies to help a special cause in Guilford.
The Greenwich Farmers’ Market runs from May through December, weather permitting, from 9:30 -1:00 every Saturday. To be on the weekly email list, contact [email protected]. Visit our website to learn more.
