East Haven Farmers Market returns June 12

EAST HAVEN – The East Haven Farmers Market is set to open its 2022 season on June 12, according to Mayor Joseph Carfora.

The market, which takes place on the Town Green, operates from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Sundays rain or shine, depending on the commune. If the market is canceled on a given Sunday, a notice will be posted on the city’s social media accounts and website.

“Our Farmers Market is a great place to meet neighbors, support our local farmers and shop for seasonal produce,” Carfora said in a statement. “Farmers depend on the community to buy their products. The East Haven Farmers Market continues to grow each season and it is thanks to the continued support of residents and those who visit our neighboring towns.

The farmers’ market provides access to locally grown, farm-fresh produce, the statement said.

“The number of new suppliers and the variety of offerings have increased over the seasons,” said Michelle Benivegna, market manager. “Our goal is to provide affordable, fresh, local and healthy food to our residents.”

Yoga will also be offered on the Green on Sundays starting at 9 a.m.

This season, the market will partner with the Shoreline Garden Club to offer different planting activities to residents, the statement said. On the opening day of the market, the gardening club will offer residents the opportunity to plant fine herbs in pots which they will decorate.

The activities will be free. Free shopping bags will also be provided on opening day, according to the release.

New sellers are welcome to participate in the marketplace and can contact Benivegna at 203-468-3204 or [email protected]
