Two locally sourced markets are officially back in town

It’s time to get your grills and ovens ready for some fresh produce, as locally harvested products from across the region started a weekly trip to the Wilton Historical Society this week.

Wilton’s Farmers’ Market kicked off another season in front of the society’s Betts House on Wednesday, June 18, from 12:30 to 5.

The market will be supported by the Wilton Chamber of Commerce and the historical society each Wednesday from 12:30 to 5, until its final date on Oct. 1.

A collection of local farmers and artisans will come to give shoppers a venue to purchase “the best products from local vendors,” Chamber Director Janeen Leppert said in a recent press release.

This year’s featured vendors offer local produce, baked goods, and other foodstuffs.

They include:

  • Ambler Farm;
  • Gazy Brothers Farm;
  • Carrot Top Kitchens;
  • Dough & Co.;
  • Bistro du Soleil;
  • Darling Farm;
  • Bounty Food Truck gourmet burgers;
  • Beldotti Breads.

In addition to traditionally expected food sellers, the Wilton Farmers’ Market also provides an arena for local artisans to show off their wares.

This year’s artisans and crafters include:

  • Anita Designs;
  • Nutmeg Candle;
  • Fairfield Seaglass;
  • Three Bluebirds.

A website has been set up to help shoppers get the most out of their market experience.

The site at wiltonfarmersmarket.com includes dates, times, location, and parking information as well as a list of vendors, and seasonal menu planning tips.
