The Farmers Market at Plainville High School opened on June 27. On Friday, July 4, the market will be closed due to the beginning of the holiday weekend.

On July 11, the market will feature the Jay Johnson Trio band that plays contemporary jazz. Confetti’s Red Truck will be on site making honey fritters and selling their Focaccia and Italian bread. They will also will be taking orders and making on site Artisan pizza and roasted corn on the cob from the George Hall Farm, a vendor on site

The town’s faarmers market is a state certified exemption farmers market.  Confetti’s restaurant will be a vendor, offering Connecticut produced cheeses, Greek yogurt, and milk from the Hastings Farm.

Other vendors on site are the George Hall Farm and the Killiam and Bassette farms, which are both certified organic farms. The Eaglewoods Farm sells organic raised beef, pork, chicken and duck eggs. The Dineberg’s farm is cropping three fields this year harvesting snap peas and kale.

The wet spring has moved back the harvesting of vegetables by two to three weeks. The fresh produce and fruit are certified Connecticut grown which is brought to the market weekly as it is harvested.
