New Winter Farmers Market to Open in Southport

By Analiese Paik

Ikranian American Club
The Winter Southport Farmers’ Market will be held each Saturday from 10-1 at the Ukranian American Club.

It’s been years since the winter farmers market at the FTC (Fairfield Theater Company) closed, and since then Fairfield has gone without a downtown winter market. That’s about to change.

Silver Pond Farm EggsStarting next month, a new Winter Farmers’ Market of Southport will be held in the upper hall of the Ukrainian-American Club located at 279 Kings Drive each Saturday between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. Diane Lytwyn of Silver Pond Farm will be the anchor organic produce and egg farmer and assist her husband Paul in his role as Market Master. You may recognize her beautiful eggs from French Marans, Barred Rocks, Easter Egg hens, Tetratints, and Rhode Island Reds from your purchases at the Greenfield Hill Farmer’s Market where Silver Pond Farm is a vendor.

Silver Pond Farm lettuceLytwyn said “The location is ideal because the building can be seen directly from I-95 and is adjacent to Route 1. The hall is well lit, heated with restrooms on the same level, and the parking lot is very large, with plenty of space for our vendors and the public.”

Call for Vendors! Honey, Syrup, Dairy and More!

This market is still adding vendors since there is ample space both inside and outdoors for parking. If you are interested in participating as a vendor, please contact Diane Lytwyn at . Tables will be provided and the space cost is $20.00 per market. Farmers with produce will operate under their license from the Town of Fairfield. All vendors with prepared foods MUST obtain a food license from the Fairfield Dept. of Health unless the business is already located in Fairfield. Crafts vendors do not require licensing.

Please “like” the market on their new Facebook page.
