The newly revitalized Downtown Milford Farmers Market will be operating every Saturday all spring and summer, located at 58 River Street 9am- 1pm. It will boast a variety of specialty local vendors (vendor list can be viewed below). In addition to fresh produce, tasty treats and artistic treasures, Market Masters Lesli Flick and Alex Malaspinas of Scratch Baking will be distributing a market specific recipe each week to excite your taste buds and liven up your weekend cooking. “Our daytime market will provide a shopping experience for the entire family,” Flick, owner of Milford’s Scratch Baking, said.
Amidst the hum of CT based vendors in this stylized farmers market setting, patrons will also enjoy live music, interactive events and entertainers, as well as prepared foods. From flowers to free-range meats, this year’s market has set it's sights on outstanding pleasures for the palate and the people.
After stuffing your reusable grocery bags with marketfresh produce, you will not want to miss the allnatural kettle corn, clams caught right off the shores of Milford, or locally sourced ice cream.
