Farmers’ Market Returns To Imperial Lot

The Westport Farmers’ Market is coming “home.”

After a successful, COVID-induced pre-order and pick-up run at Gilbertie’s Herbs & Garden Center, the popular weekly event returns to the parking lot at 50 Imperial Avenue beginning tomorrow (Thursday, May 14).

As usual, the market runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. However, it will continue to operate on a pre-order basis with scheduled pick-up times. There is no onsite shopping. Delivery options are available.

There are 15 vendors now; more will be added throughout the season. Online orders are accepted from Saturdays at 4 p.m. through Monday at noon. (In other words, all orders have already been accepted for tomorrow.)

“We love our community, and are thrilled to return to our summer location,” says executive director Lori Cochran Dougall. “While the market is operating differently, we are who we are at our core. We look forward to launching the harvest season with our supporters.”

  1. Can someone help me figure out the name of the vendor I’m looking for…when you face the market from the parking lot they are all the way on the right. They are mostly a farm stand and always had great hummus and soup in the corner. Thanks.

  2. Thank you Dan for posting. Lori, as always we appreciate your leadership skills and commitment to our small Connecticut farms. I urge all to support these small businesses.
    Look forward to seeing everyone soon, and of course helping with the “Brandon Break Down” Crew when we are there.
