Yesterday marked the opening of the Farmers' Market at Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington. A terrific crowd of locavores turned out for the 1st Sunday! The Market is open every Sunday from 11–2 through October 24. Hill-Stead hosts the farmers' market as it relates to the Theodate Pope Riddle's original use of the property as a working farm to benefit the community.
Celebrate Connecticut farms!
Beautiful weather and enticing local and organic foods — vegetables, fruits, meats, cheeses and breads — attracted many. Also available were local products like hand-made soaps and lotions, cut flowers and yarns. A little something for everyone, in a lovely setting at the Hill-Stead Museum. Make a plan to attend this summer, and stay to visit the terrific collection at the Museum, picnic or hike the grounds.
