Summer arrives tomorrow.
That’s opening day for the Farmers’ Market. This year there’s a twist: It moves to the Imperial Avenue parking lot, next to the Westport Woman’s Club.
Every Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., up to 30 vendors will sell fruits, vegetables, eggs, cheeses, honey, herbs, baked goods, teas and flowers. And more: chicken, pork, lamb, beef, artisinal goat (?!), yogurt, lobsters and oysters.
And what New England farmer’s market would be complete without fresh made tamales?
This year’s edition — which, as always, supports local agriculture — is run through a new association. There’s a new market director, and new support from the Westport Green Village Initiative.
Who says there’s nothing new under the sun?
