Westport Farmers Market Celebrates Opening Day on May 19

 

WFMlogoThe Westport Farmers’ Market (WFM) will kick off the 2016 summer season on May 19, celebrating fresh, local food and the community that supports us from 10-2 each Thursday.

WFM cultivates community, nurtures an appreciation of real food and the work that goes into growing it.

WFM has blossomed into a market that boasts 45 vendors, food trucks, chef demos, yoga, organic eats, children’s programming and even a pizza truck. Thanks to thousands of shoppers from all over Fairfield County, WFM’s Thursday market is a destination not to be missed.

“This market continues to grow and expand which is a true testament to all the work that goes into this market, and to all the farmers, vendors, and volunteers who make it possible. It’s become a source of pride for the community, and that’s something truly special.” Says Lori Cochran-Dougall, Executive Director.

What do we have in store for 2016? Plenty of old friends, along with some new faces. Look for integrated chef involvement, expanded children’s programming, and some gorgeous new Friends of the Market bags and offsite fun and educational events. Join us at 12:00, high noon, to toast local food with organic green juice donated by The Stand.
