Bethel Farmers’ Market (updated for 2016)

The Bethel Farmers’ Market is one of the oldest markets in the state of Connecticut. It was started over three decades ago by a group of farmers, most of whom still participate in the market. The market offers shoppers a wide range of products to choose from – beautiful plants, fruits and vegetables, soap and body products, baked goods, meats, eggs, handmade granola and awesome prepared foods.  All of the vendors are located within 50 miles of Bethel, making it a truly local food experience.
