New vendors join the Wilton Farmer’s Market for 2018 as the season kicks off today, Wednesday, June 6. Presented by the Wilton Chamber of Commerce, the Farmer’s Market is hosted every Wednesday at the Wilton Historical Society, (224 Danbury Rd.) and is sponsored by Bankwell Wilton. The market will run through Oct. 24.
Among the many products offered at the market are fresh, locally grown produce and flowers, cheeses, sauces, oils, pickles, prepared foods, and cookies and sweets. Plus, the market features food trucks, and non-food items like fashion, jewelry and more.
Returning vendors include Ambler Farm, Gazy Brothers Farm, Horseshoe Farm, Beldotti Bakery, Bistro du Soleil, Blue Lotus, Witchy Poo, Chef Jeff’s BBQ, TJ’s Cookies, and others. New vendors that will be welcomed this year include M.EAT Provisions, which offers certified organic meats and grass-fed beef; Wilton’s own Painted Cookie, with nut free cookies and baked goods; Earth Blues, with accessories made from up-cycled grocery bags, feed bags and denim; Sova Theater, a puppeteer; and Angie’s Cocinita, a new food truck featuring authentic Mexican and Cuban Cuisine.
Guest vendors will also be making appearances each week; some of the guests planned are Bare Burger of Ridgefield, and Bubble and Brew, a new bubble tea and baked goods vendor.
“Producing this Farmers Market is a great opportunity to serve the community, showcase Wilton and bring some new and different products to customers,” says Wilton Chamber executive director Debra Hanson. “The community seems to very much enjoy visiting this outdoor venue to purchase farm fresh and artisan foods and products, have a bite or two, enjoy a sweet treat and support our local providers.”
