New Tastes (and Sounds) at the Market


Live music, a key part of the 2019 season, returns Sat.

If there’s been one missing piece from the market this season, it’s been live music.


When the season began back in June, farmers markets all across the state were restricted from offering live music. The restriction was lifted in July as life in Connecticut nudged a little closer to normal. On Saturday live music will finally return to the market. John Fazzio Jr. will kickoff this season’s lineup. A solo guitarist, John’s soft sounds seem like the perfect accompaniment to a farmers market stroll. He’ll be offering the sweet sounds of summer all market long.



Along with new sounds, there will be new tastes at the market, too. Beginning this Saturday, a food truck will visit the market weekly. Milford’s own Grateful Dog will be on site this Saturday. They’ll be serving up made-to-order egg sandwiches and yogurt parfaits for breakfast. For lunch they’ll offer made-to-order hamburgers and hotdogs with a variety of fun toppings. Need a cold beverage? They’ll have that for you, too!



The farmers are also ready to put on a show this Saturday. Thanks to cooperative weather, this summer has offered a remarkably hearty harvest so far. Get ready to dive into it on Saturday! Our three produce farmers expect tables piled high with your favorites. Several veggies will make their debut for the season, including onions, peppers, and eggplant. A market favorite, corn, will be back for the second week at $.75 an ear. Oh, and how could I forget to mention the greens? There will be atleast five varieties of lettuce to choose from at $2 a head!



A hearty harvest, a food truck, and a little live music. It’s shaping up to be an amazing Saturday. All we need now is you.
