Weather permitting, actual farm animals will be out on their front lawn.
Saturday, March 05, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Supporting local farmers and artisans is a great way to insure that these small farms and industries continue to exist. As Jonathan Safran Foer talks about in his book, Eating Animals, Fairfield's One Book One Town 2011 choice, food safety, the ethical treatment of animals, and sustainability are important considerations as we choose what we eat.
The Farmer's Market will take place in the Auditorium; the Speakers will be in the Main Reading Room.
