FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Sherman Green in downtown Fairfield is slated to host a new farmers market beginning Sunday, June 19.
The event will be held weekly on Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine, and continue throughout the summer.
The market is expected to feature approximately a dozen local farm vendors and producers offering a diverse array of fresh and seasonal vegetables, fruit, herbs, bread, eggs and fish.
A pilot initiative of the Fairfield Department of Community & Economic Development, the project was established in collaboration with local business owner Bill Auer of Firehouse Deli.
“We are delighted to help bring a farmers market to downtown Fairfield,” said Mark Barnhart, director of Community & Economic Development, who pitched the idea to the Fairfield Parks & Recreation Commission and secured the necessary approvals. “Bill Auer was really the driving force behind this, and his persistence finally paid off. Bill’s enthusiasm is contagious, and I couldn’t ask for a better partner.”
Auer will serve as market master.
“The response from area farmers and producers has been really terrific,” Auer said. “We are just so excited to hold a farmers market on Sherman Green, and I think it will be a wonderful addition to the downtown.”
