One of the only farmers’ markets operating year-round in Connecticut, CitySeed’s sixth annual Winter Farmers’ Market opens indoors for the 2020 season on Saturday, January 11th at Metropolitan Business Academy, 115 Water Street, from 10am to 1pm. In addition to providing a viable marketplace where farmers and vendors are able to sell in the off-season, CitySeed’s Winter Market is a warm, welcoming community gathering place where shoppers meet up with friends and neighbors to celebrate local food during the cold winter months.
The Winter Market features a variety of “Saturday brunch” menu items including hot drinks, sweet and savory baked goods from renowned local bakeries and prepared offerings from a weekly rotation of food trucks. Farm fresh food items include root vegetables, greens, apples, cider, chicken, beef, pork, seafood, eggs, mushrooms, dairy products, cheeses, jams and more. The Winter Market features family-friendly indoor activities and live performances by a series of local musicians. Knife and tool sharpening services are also offered.
