The Thursday Farmers’ Market opened today in the Imperial Avenue parking lot behind the Westport Woman’s Club.
Over 25 vendors welcomed a steady stream of customers (and food samplers). Nine newcomers this year offer dairy products, baked goods, vegan lunches, heirloom grains, lentils, gluten-free bread, granola bars and coffee.
And what would a farmers’ market be without brick oven pizza and artisan chocolates?
But the surprise hit of the day was this:
Coop D’Etat — get it? — is a Weston business specializing in “custom chicken coops and chicken keeping.”
They were at the farmers’ market selling eggs.
I’m sure I’m not the only one wondering whether this Cochin made it back to Weston in one piece.
