You Know It’s Spring When…

the damn rain finally ends the Farmer’s Market returns.

We’re not so sure about the weather, but the 1st Sunday Farmer’s Market of the season is tomorrow.

It runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Sunday through October 30 — the day before Halloween, if you’re planning ahead — in the Saugatuck Congregational Church parking lot.

Rain or shine, they say.

Returning regular faces include Westport’s Belta’s Farm.  They’ll join new vendors selling locally grown produce and flowers, food to go from Bistro du Soleil, eggs, honey, baked goods, plants, fresh pesto, handcrafted items, seasonal goods, and — just what every farmer’s market needs — dog treats.

After each market, vendors will donate unsold items to Bridgeport’s Park City Initiative.  Last year, that amounted to 25,000 pounds of goods.

The Sunday Farmer’s Market is an important Westport tradition.  And now, even if you don’t buy a thing, you’ll still help Connecticut’s healthful eating cause.
