17 Aug What Makes the Cromwell Farmers Market Unique?
Whether you’re a local or a visitor looking for activities to do in Connecticut, you won’t want to miss the Cromwell Farmers Market. Here are just some of the reasons this farmers market is so famous.
One of the Best Farmers Markets
The Cromwell Farmers Market has the atmosphere of a county fair. It runs every Friday, rain, or shine, from June to September at Frisbee Landing Park.
Ranked the sixth-best market in the country and second-best in the state, this market gives you the opportunity to buy directly from the farmers and artisans. The market is run by the Polke family and aims to create a sense of community.
Finest Farms and Makers
Each week, over 40 vendors ply their wares. If you’re a fan of fresh fruit and veg, you’ll love the seasonal lineup. You won’t get fresher than straight from the farmer who grew it. As well as the traditional fare, you’ll find baked goods, cheeses, chocolates, hot sauces, Italian ice, natural soaps, handmade crafts, and everything in between at the market.
Live Entertainment and Food
Each week, a different Connecticut act performs live during the market. This gives everyone a chance to see just how talented the local community is. In addition, several food trucks and vendors line up each market day with a range of sweet and savory foods that are bound to tempt you.
Park your rug on the grass, settle down with some dinner, and listen to the music while taking in the picturesque setting next to the Connecticut River.
Kids’ Day Farmers Market
Every year, one market day is a dedicated kids’ day. Kids who’ve been growing fruit and vegetables in the adjacent children’s garden are given a chance to test their entrepreneurship skills by selling their produce at the kids’ day farmers market. Other children sell fresh baking and cooking, while those with a creative flair test their inventions and designs on the Cromwell population.
It’s the perfect family outing, with plenty of kid-orientated activities and entertainment including face painting, stilt walking clowns and balloon twisting.
