3/26 Update on Local Food Availability
THE 3/28 FARMERS' MARKET IS CANCELLED. However, there are still ways to get local food from your favorite vendors. See the listing below for what/where/how it is available. We will update the website every few days with more information. Also, see the information under the Sustainable Tip section about our sister program, the NW CT Regional Food Hub, exploring interest in a drive-through pick-up farm share approach.
We look forward to seeing you all again at the market, hopefully sooner than later. Stay well.
Sustainable Tip of the Week
Interested in weekly fresh produce from local farms?
The Northwest Connecticut Regional Food Hub works with farmers all over northwest Connecticut picking up their fresh, locally grown produce and delivering it to happy wholesale customers (schools, grocery stores, and restaurants). We want to continue supporting our region’s farmers and getting fresh, healthy food to the region’s residents. Sadly, in this challenging environment in-person farmers markets are difficult to have and many restaurants are closed. So the Hub is launching a new drive-thru pick-up “farm share” service at selected town hall parking lots.
At this point we need to see how many residents might be interested in this service. If you are interested, please go to: www.nwctfoodhub.org/farm-share by March 31st to let us know you would like to participate. No commitment needed at this time, we just want to gauge interest. We hope to begin offering weekly pick up the third week of April.
For more information on how much this would cost, how we will keep you safe, and what could be in a weekly farm share visit this website: https://www.nwctfoodhub.org/farm-share
