Top Five Fall Finds at the Market


The Vaiuso Farms crew on a crisp morning.

Freshly baked apple pies. CT-grown pumpkins piled high. Juicy honey crisp apples picked just down the road. A farmers market offers more ways to celebrate the season than the biggest of coffee chains could ever dream up. Squash spiced latte? I'll pass.


As hints of fall begin to settle into the September air, our farmers market fills with the colors, scents, and tastes of this special time of year. Drop into your favorite flannel and take a stroll downtown. You’ll find these fall treats waiting for you...



Candles: New to the market this season, Ridge Runner Soaps is offering fall scented candles set in mason jars. Choose a sweet flavor like Pumpkin Chai, or settle for something a little savory, like Fireside.



Mums: Brighten up your fall with beautiful potted mums. Vaiuso Farms grows them just down the road in Branford and offers them weekly at the market.



Coffee and Coco: A crisp morning calls for a hot cup of coffee. Wild Women will serve up their custom brews along with fun conversation in the sunshine of this Saturday. In the coming weeks they'll debut their decadent Mexican Hot Coco - a favorite among chocolate lovers.



Apple Cider Donuts: Oronoque Farms Bakery has been a wonderful new addition to this season’s market. With this time of year comes their locally baked donuts. Pick up a pack of 2 or 6 and share ‘em with friends and family.



Thanksgiving Dinner: We’ll be settling into the holiday season before we know it. Localize your Thanksgiving with a pasture-raised turkey from Ekonk Hill Farm. A little nervous about changing your traditions? Katie is happy to answer any questions you may have about reserving, picking up, and preparing your fresh turkey.


Come celebrate fall with us, but please don’t wait too long! Market season ends October 10th.
