It's that time of year! My garden is starting to get it's groove on, but so are the wonderful farmer's markets around Connecticut!
While many of the markets don't get going until July, there are several that are open TODAY around the state. CToutandabout.com has a list of events including farmer's markets for today right here.
For a list of all the certified farmer's markets in CT and their opening dates, click here. That's not to say that there aren't other markets that pop up, such as the one in my town, so watch your local papers for news on those.
I've written about my love for farmer's markets before, and my local favorite so far remains the Friday afternoon & Saturday morning farmer's market at Ashlawn Farm in Lyme. So many farmers in one place, right on a scenic farm which also roasts it's own coffee...can't think of a better way to end my Friday. For those of you who don't live as close as I do, why not make a day of it and hit the beach or stroll along the shoreline? Oh, and don't forget to grab a cup of their coffee. (You'll thank me later!)
I am happy to support local farmers and feed my family very fresh, mostly organic, food. Now, off to raid my garden for strawberries & lettuces to share with friends!
