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 and cutting boards, soaps,gorgeous note cards, and oilcloth bags and table linens. Relax at a picnic table and enjoy a snack and the music.

Summer Market

Each Saturday between Memorial Day and Columbus Day the market is held from 9:00am-12:00pm in the parking lot at the Velvet Mill, 22 Bayview Avenue, Stonington. 

The Summer market 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 Stonington Village Improvement Association sets up a tent at the market each week. Volunteers are always welcome to work at this table where we sell merchandise such as t-shirts,hats, mugs and reusable tote bags, the proceeds of which offset the cost of advertising and promoting the market.

Winter Market

Each Saturday in the winter, the market is located inside the Velvet Mill, 22 Bayview Avenue, Stonington; it is open from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.  It is in the back room closest to Meadow Avenue.

The winter market 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.
