Coventry Regional Farmers' Market

 Farmers’ Markets are popping up all over the state, and we couldn’t be happier!  One market that’s been doing it for years and has really built itself up is the Coventry Regional Farmers’ Market.  It is located at the Nathan Hale Homestead at 2299 South Street in Coventry, CT.
About to begin its 8th year, this market now draws in 65,000 visitors each year.  The summer market is open every Sunday from 11-2, starting in June and going until October.  It’s home to over 50 vendors, including local farms and artisans, with goods ranging from fruits and vegetables to jewelry and soaps.  Believe it or not, they WILL have something for everyone.
So what about the winter time?  Don’t worry because there is also a winter market at the Coventry High School, which features over 30 farms and specialty food producers.  This market runs from November through March.
But wait, that’s not all!  They have a weekly e-newsletter with info on vendors, events and programs, and more.  And there’s a nice photo gallery which captures the lively spirit that the market draws each week.
So even if you don’t live near Coventry, make some time one weekend this summer to go visit.  You won’t be disappointed!  For a full list of information, check out their site at http://coventryfarmersmarket.com/.
