Sundays in downtown Fairfield are about to become even more fun, and delicious. The Downtown Fairfield Farmers Market returns for its second season starting Sunday, June 11. Head to the historic Sherman Green each Sunday between 10 and 2, rain or shine, until Oct 1 to do your weekly shopping. Bring the whole family so they can choose what they love, and the selection is pretty incredible.
The public is invited to join the Northeast Organic Farming Association of CT (CT NOFA) for a day of learning about organic gardening, land care, homesteading/farming and DIY foods including kombucha, ginger beer, wine, and fermented vegetables.
No summer bucket list would be complete without a meal at Back 40 Kitchen on Greenwich Avenue, the newest addition to the Back 40 Group of family-owned businesses that include Back 40 Farm in Washington, CT and Back 40 Mercantile in Old Greenwich. The warm and relaxed decor in this modern farmhouse restaurant sets the stage for casual yet sophisticated dining in harmony with the seasons.

I’m reading Pope Francis’ environmental encyclical, Laudato Si, which unabashedly describes environmental degradation as “a tragic consequence” of unchecked human activity and our greatest sin.
Since we’re the ones to blame for the sad state of the earth, each of us must work towards solving the problems contributing to the destruction of our “common home.”
Grass Rxoots recently opened in the lobby of Halo Studios in New Canaan. And, it couldn’t be a more perfect spot.
Halo Studios is a health and wellness facility dedicated to your physical well-being. From Tai Chi and Yoga to personal training and nutritional counseling, your body gets a workout. But sometimes that body needs to be nourished, too. That’s where Grass Rxoots, the brainchild of Dr. Steven Murphy and CEO and “creative strategist” Rhoby Schempp, comes in. It’s like one-stop shopping for a captive audience under the same roof.
