Where are the Farmers Markets in the Hartford area? – Hartford Courant
Late spring, summer and early fall are the season for farmers’ markets. In Hartford County there is a market somewhere every day of the week, selling fruits, herbs, vegetables, eggs, cheese, meats, jams and jellies, honey, oils and vinegars, fresh baked goods, as well as products made by local artisans.
Most markets accept SNAP and EBT as a form of payment for food, and many double the benefits. Ask the market or visit the website to confirm. Some markets offer live entertainment and food trucks.
