Chester Sunday Market – Open Every Sunday This Summer

In Chester CT Events, Market on August 10, 2016 at 9:16 am

Everyone is thrilled! The Chester Sunday Market has opened for the season for every Sunday through the summer, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. That means: locally grown (often organic) produce, locally raised meats and poultry, just-caught seafood from Rhode Island, locally made breads and jams and pickles. All that adds up to great eating for you and your family!

The vendors are all listed on the website (http://chestersundaymarket.jimdo.com), with links to their websites.  They are:  seven farms bringing produce – Chatfield Hollow Farm, Deep Hollow Farms, Dondero Orchards, Hunts Brook Farm, Sage Hill Farm, Upper Pond Farm and Wellstone Farm. Meat, fish and poultry from Four Mile River Farm, Gourmavian Farms, Maple Breeze Farm and The Local Catch. Beltane Farm bringing cheese & dairy products. Bread from Alforno Restaurant and Howard’s Breads. Plus, flowers and honey and jams and pickles and biscotti from: Hay House, Stonewall Apiary, Little Bird Provision Co. and Biscotti and Beyond.

Live music is lined up for each week. The bands play from 11 to 1.

In the words of the organizers: “The philosophy of the Chester Sunday Market is to bring the community together with local products and to have a good time doing it. It is a weekly town-wide farmers’ market that brings our community together. We invite local vendors to sell produce, meats, cheeses, breads and so much more.  Our goal is to stay local so we can help the smaller farmers in the area. Having all these amazing vendors join us in our lovely little town is a great way to promote our community and see each other. Main Street is closed off for the market giving the patrons the freedom to walk about town. Music is provided along with a bistro area so you can sit and have a cup of coffee or a slice of pizza.”  LOCAL CATCH resize  

Because Main Street is closed to traffic between West Main St. (Rte. 148) and Maple St., shoppers are invited to park in the town public parking lots on Maple Street and at 20 Water St. (Rte. 148). Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Shops and galleries are open during Market hours and often offer special happenings. You can find late breakfast or lunch at the restaurants in Chester Center, or buy some pizza on the street from one of the vendors, Frank Andrews Mobile Kitchen.
