Farmers' Market

 

Summer & Early Fall   9am - 12noon (outside)

Late Fall, Winter & Spring  9am - 12noon (inside)

The SVIA Board is reviewing its recent decision to pause music at the indoor Farmers' Market. The Board is evaluating the feedback of our vendors and customers and is working on a plan to return music to the market for everyone's enjoyment. Please watch this space or our Facebook page for updates. 

 

From mid-May to mid-October, the market is outside in the back parking lot of the Velvet Mill, 22 Bayview Avenue in Stonington. In Mid-October, the market moves inside the Velvet Mill in the back room closest to Meadow Avenue.

About the Farmer's Market

The Stonington Farmers’ Market began in 1997 under the initiative of Geoffrey Little. The enormously popular market attracts residents from the Borough and surrounding communities who come to buy fresh, healthy, local food. In 2008 the Stonington Farmers’ Market became a year-round event, moving inside during the winter months.

 

Items sold at the market include locally grown vegetables and fruits, jams, a variety of breads, pies and baked goods, cheese, eggs, poultry, meat, seafood, Italian ices, maple syrup, honey, and flowers. Thanks to greenhouses, our farmers are able to offer a selection of fresh produce throughout the winter. Our market offers whatever our farmers are harvesting each week as well as prepared foods such as salsa, soups, meat pies, hummus, breakfast sandwiches, and baked goods.


In addition to great food, different craft vendors are featured each week at the market. Among the hand-made items you will find are beautiful candles, pottery, jewelry, wooden bowls, cutting boards, soaps, gorgeous note cards, and table linens. 


For more information on the market, please visit the Farmers' Market page on Facebook.

Summer/Early Fall Market

The Summer/Early Fall Market is held outdoors at the Velvet Mill (back parking lot) and is a great place to connect with friends and neighbors. Bring your dogs for some socialization, and let your kids have fun while you shop for locally grown, fresh food and hand-made crafts. Local musicians provide entertainment while you choose from the latest harvest. The SVIA sets up a tent at the market most weeks where we sell merchandise such as t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, hats, and reusable tote bags, the proceeds of which help offset the cost of advertising and promoting the market. Volunteers are always welcome to work at this table.

Late Fall/Winter/Spring Market

The Winter/Spring Market moves indoors at the Velvet Mill and provides a great meeting place for the community. On cold winter days, it’s fun to stop in for a hot cup of homemade soup, a chat with friends, and to see what the farmers and craft vendors are offering. Get there early before the greenhouse spinach or baby bok choy sells out!  A variety of musicians cheer up a gray day, and craft vendors offer unique gifts for the holiday season. And your dogs are welcome too!
