Double L Farm Stand Is — A Farm

Last week — in the midst of the summer growing season — the town of Fairfield threatened to shut down the very popular Double L Farm Stand.

The town alleged zoning violations in the open-air market, on the Post Road a few yards beyond the Westport line.  Owner Lloyd Allen countered:  “We’re being treated with the same mind-set as Stop & Shop.”

Lloyd called a few minutes ago, with great news.  The Connecticut Department of Agriculture ruled — ta da! — that the Double L Farm Stand is officially “a farm.”  A farm is zoned differently than, let’s say, Stop & Shop.

So Double L is open for business.  As always, business is booming.

Go whenever you can.  New local produce arrives throughout each day.
