The Wethersfield Farmers’ Market began as a joint initiative of the Economic
Development & Improvement Commission (EDIC) and the Tourism Commission.
We started it to serve the Community. From the beginning this meant going
beyond offering “Farm Fresh” produce to our citizens. We wanted the Market
to support local businesses, musicians, and artists and to attract people from
neighboring communities to see all that Wethersfield has to offer. It has become
a focal point and destination event each Thursday in the summer where people
can buy healthy food, shop, eat, bring their children and dogs, meet neighbors,
enjoy music, and learn what events and good causes are being supported in
town. We make a special effort to support and promote all worthy community
events and undertakings. We support many local non-profits. Our Market features
+ 15 vendors offering a variety of fresh, locally grown fruits & vegetables, herbs,
plants, flowers, baked goods, cheeses, dairy, honey, jams/jellies/relishes, syrups,
natural soaps and skincare products, handmade crafts and other specialty items.
Pizza using farm-fresh ingredients is made on-site and Italian ice and soft drinks
In 1634 Wethersfield’s alluvial soil attracted settlers looking for fertile land for
planting crops. Wethersfield (which included Glastonbury, Newington and Rocky
Hill) became a prominent farming community thriving and profiting by trading
its agricultural produce. Most famous was the Wethersfield red onion which now
symbolizes our agricultural history.The Wethersfield Farmers’ Market in the “old
village” is an effort to preserve and continue that tradition.
