Grab your reusable shopping bags, stop off at the ATM for some cash, and call a friend to meet you at the indoor winter farmers’ market at the Greenfield Hill Grange in Fairfield. The market opens on Saturday, January 15, and runs every Saturday through the spring from 10 am – 1pm. Located at 1873 Hillside Road, The Greenfield Hill Grange dates back to 1897 and contains an assembly room, dining hall and second floor theater. The market will be limited to the first floor only, and to protect this Colonial Revival-style building, guests are asked to please not enter with any pets. Due to Fairfield Health Department regulations, no prepared food will be served and no farm animals will be on display.
Nancy Moore and son Richard of Moorefield Herb Farm co-manage this market with Lise Agee of Goatboy Soaps. Thank you for organizing and running this market. We’re certainly happy to be able to shop in a heated space this season!
