Back to the market

The Wilton Farmer’s Market will return to the Wilton Historical Society on June 8, and will be open every Wednesday from 12 to 5 p.m.

Old favorites like Ambler Farm’s fruits and vegetables will be back, along with Gazy Brothers Farm’s produce, plants, honey and maple syrup, and Bistro du Soleil’s salads, soups, sauces, and take-home meals. St. Ex. Specialty Foods will also return with its fresh mozzarella, pesto, and homemade breads.

New vendors featured this year include Horseshoe Farm, Paul’s Custom Pet Food, and Herbaceous Catering, and several others.

The market will welcome two food trucks this season — Boothbay Lobster Company, selling lobster rolls and other fresh seafood, and Chef Jeff’s BBQ, serving Southern and Cajun cuisine, along with food straight from the smoker.

This year, the market also plans to hold cooking demonstrations featuring its vendors and their ingredients.

The Wilton Farmer’s Market was started by the Wilton Chamber of Commerce in 2011. It held its first season at the Wilton Library before moving to the Wilton Historical Society. Today, it remains partners with both organizations.

The market aims to promote small businesses and enhance the community experience. Through showcasing a variety of foods and vendors, the farmer’s market hopes to draw in out-of-towners to explore and experience Wilton.
