The Meriden Farmers' Market, located at the Meriden Hub (intersection of East Main and Pratt St.) will be open each Saturday from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm, July 7 - October 20, 2012. It is open rain or shine. The Market will offer four types of vendors for shoppers:
- Farmers - providing farm-fresh produce
- Specialty Food Vendors - featuring products such as heirloom tomatoes, cheese, eggs or honey
- On-site Food Preparation - such as “lunch on the go” booths and guest restaurants
- Non-Food Vendors - including local craftsmen offering items such as jewelry, cut and silk flowers, homemade crafts and clothing.
Ripe produce is harvested and then sold at the Market that day, providing an exceptional garden-fresh taste. Shoppers will find a variety of fruits and vegetables grown for flavor and have the opportunity to meet the farmers, perhaps discussing with them the growing conditions or special cooking recipes. And buying from Connecticut farmers also helps our state’s economy.
Ample free parking is available at the Hub.
Each week at the Market will be a new experience. Food booths with varying ethnic flavors, different community groups, and new entertainment will be just a few of the features.
ALL ITEMS ARE CONNECTICUT GROWN OR PRODUCED!
