It’s that delicious, fruitful, plentiful time of year again! The Wilton Farmer’s Market will have its opening day on Wednesday, June 8, signaling the start of summer. As it did the last few successful years, the farmer’s market again will take up residence every Wednesday from noon-5 p.m. in front of the Wilton Historical Society (224 Danbury Rd.), from noon to 5 pm.
The market will run all summer into fall, through Oct. 26.
The market is supported by the Wilton Chamber of Commerce and is hosted by the Historical Society.
The Market will be comprised of local and regional farmers and artisans who come together to provide shoppers with a venue at which to purchase unique, tasty and specialty products. Featured are local produce, baked goods, and other goodies, including jewelry, natural hair and skin products, pet food and more. Some vendors that have already signed on include:

Details are currently being finalized for additional vendors. The Farmer’s Market expects to have purveyors at 15 booths each week.
This year the market will open at noon to encourage shoppers to “dine” at the market, while enjoying entertainment and activities throughout the season. Some of the chef vendors will be doing live food demonstrations. There will also be several crafters and artisans present, selling their wares.
As a Wilton Chamber of Commerce program, the market is meant to help educate the public about eating locally and the importance of making healthy, nutritious food choices, while providing a venue for community members to enjoy some of the best produce, baked goods, and more from local vendors.
