Opening day music will be presented by Dueces Child and the playground on-site provides additional entertainment for the children.

The Market offers Connecticut grown, farm-fresh products and promotes local businesses in a lively family oriented setting.

In a community partnership with Neighbor to Neighbor, the farmers donate excess produce to the Greenwich food pantry, facilitated by volunteers from Neighbor to Neighbor.

In addition, The Garden Club of Old Greenwich will be in attendance throughout the season with helpful and useful information, ideas and gardening tips.

This year, expect new items from Ivy’s Granola, Dough & Company, and Early’s Edibles.

In addition, look for natural skin products by Pia Rosa, responsibly engineered and innovative designs by 3Dux designs and pottery by Danielle Evita this season.

Most guest vendors attend every other week or once a month. To find out who is attending each week, email info@oldgreenwichfarmersmarket.com to receive the market’s Tuesday evening newsletter.
