2018 Hartford Farmer’s Market Season Arrives!

Summer season in Hartford is finally among us. From food truck festivals to art shows, summer in Hartford has a lot to offer. Among these exciting offerings is the availability of Hartford’s seven farmer’s markets. Hartford’s Farmers Markets actively work to increase the accessibility of fresh, healthy food for all Hartford residents and are conveniently located across the city. All accessible via CT transit, these seven markets provide a vital link between city residents, farmers, and healthy produce. As these markets represent the versatility of local Connecticut agriculture, Hartford’s Farmers Markets provide a variety of products – from dairy products to fresh fruits and vegetables to local meats. With something for everyone, Hartford’s Farmers Markets are an incredible addition to the summer season!
