Middletown's Fabulous Farmers Markets: Tips for Smart Shopping
Vegetables, fruits, restaurant vendors, soaps, beeswax candles, pies, fresh bread and so much more: how to get the best bang for your bucks.
Shopping at Middletown's farmers markets is one of the great joys of the summer season — fresh-picked fruits and veggies, grown in season, by Connecticut farmers and gardeners, breads baked fresh that morning and gourmet cheeses galore.
Middletown's North End Farmers Markets run Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through Oct. 28 in front of It's Only Natural Market on lower Main Street. There are even two more night markets, Aug. 9 and Sept. 20 from 5-8 p.m. — which also feature live music. Next week the band will be Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem.
The South Green farmers market runs Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. through Oct. 29 at Union Park on upper Main Street. Vendors are Gotta's Farm of Portland and Rose's Berry Farm from South Glastonbury.
