The 2016 Stamford Downtown Farmers Market kicks off Saturday, June 18 and will continue through October 29. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday, come out to the farmers market on Prospect Street at Latham Park and support your local vendors. There will be a wide variety of locally grown fruits, vegetables and flowers as well as breads, jams, baked goods, cheeses, oils and so much more! Don’t miss out on being able to buy straight from the farm to your home at the Stamford Downtown Farmers Market.
Some people may question why you should buy local, especially from a farmers market. Here are a few reasons why you should support your local farmers market:
- Fresh, Seasonal Flavors: When you buy from a farmers market, you can know that the food is in season and fresh, and that the flavors are better and have been grown and brought to you organically. The food isn’t highly processed or grown using pesticides, hormones and any other non-organic modifications. Farmers bring only the best by using better and safer techniques and picking right before the market begins.
- Supports Local Farmers: Many times, local farmers have trouble competing with large, agriculture businesses that control the industry. Buying from local farmers gives them a chance to compete and return to market with their fresh produce again.
- Connect with your Community: Not only do you get fresh flavors and support local farmers when you buy from a farmers market, you also get the chance to build relationships and connect with your community. At a farmers market, you can meet up with friends and family and make new friends as well. In addition, when you buy from a local farmer, there is a good chance you can learn about great cooking tips and recipes straight from the farmer. Typically, farmers love the food they grow and sell and have come up with great recipes they love to share with customers. Overall, farmers markets are great places to connect with your community.
Be sure to come out and support your local Stamford Downtown Farmers Market this June through October. For a list of vendors and more information, visit Stamford Downtown’s website.
