Westport Farmers' Market

50 Imperial Avenue, Westport

Westport Farmers’ Market Enters Its 12th Year with Something for Everyone!

Mark your calendars for the start of the Westport Farmers’ Market on Thursday, May 18th, from 10 to 2 at 50 Imperial Avenue. Whether you are on a break from work, have a day off with kids, or are meeting a friend to shop, this season’s market has something for everyone. “We’ve been working hard to make the Westport Farmers’ Market a weekly destination for the community,” said Lori Cochran-Dougall, market manager. “And we’re really excited with the result this year! We’ll have all of the vendors and activities that people love along with new vendors and programs to attract new faces.”

Opening day promises to be food and fun-filled with music by the ever-popular Henry Jones (who has been known to serenade kids with a sweet rendition of Itsy Bitsy Spider), the addition of EggZ, the market’s newest farm-to-food-truck vendor, and a special sparkling-juice toast at noon to kick off the best season yet.

Chefs from area restaurants will return this year to provide a source of inspiration to area shoppers. Each week they will create easy, healthful, delicious meals using fresh, local products found at the market. These seasonal recipes and others from top chefs throughout the area will be distributed each week at the market and available on the WFM website.

Why not consider starting out the season by becoming a Friend of the Market? The market will have new bags available at the information booth for $40 and – in exchange – every vendor promises a discounted item. You could make back your investment in one day while supporting the hard work of farmers and makers.

“The Westport Farmers’ Market continues to blossom into a place that celebrates the best in fresh, local food, and all that goes into cultivating and creating it,” said Cochran-Dougall. “Thanks to the thousands of shoppers from all over Fairfield County and beyond, the WFM boasts nearly 50 vendors, food trucks, chef demonstrations, children’s activities, music, yoga and wellness classes, and more. It has become a destination for families, friends, and co-workers to meet, as well as the source for weekly food for the kitchen.”
