I'm a born and raised city kid with a passion for whole foods and farmer's markets. I make my own tomato sauce and my own salad dressing. And yes, I have a sweet tooth too! I grew up in Pittsburgh with a pretty nice sized garden. Sadly my property in Gales Ferry only has shade so I mostly grow hosta and a few herbs on my back deck. Maybe that is why I’ve become so obsessed with farmer’s markets.
I've visited many of them in Eastern Connecticut. My favorite is in Bozrah but I love our little farmer's market in Ledyard and would love to see it grow and prosper much like the one in Bozrah has. It is much harder than one might think and a catch 22. Vendors want crowds but crowds want lots of vendors. To that end, I have decided to personally do the one thing I can do to help, that is offer free social media promotion. I think I’m pretty good at it. It certainly works for real estate so why not a farmer’s market.
So help me out here. Show up Wednesdays between 3:30-6:30 and buy a few things. You will be supporting local food growers and the food tastes really good. I hope to see you there!
