New Canaan Extends Winter Farmers' Market

NEW CNANAAN, Conn. – Residents wanting more food, teas and soaps from the New Canaan Farmers' Market will have more opportunities to get their goods as the winter edition will extend into the spring.

The farmers' market will now run through March 27 at the New Canaan Nature Center . The Board of Selectmen voted last week to extend the winter run of the market, which features small, independent vendors and is open from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesdays in March.

Hilary Wittmann, director of marketing for the New Canaan Nature Center, said the March markets were already in the works. February was used a test run to gauge traffic. It turned out to be a success, she said, though she did not have a total number of customers.

“It’s been great,” Wittmann said. “Definitely part of the decision is the great response we’ve had. All the vendors feel it’s been worthwhile, and we’re enthusiastic about it going forward.”

About a dozen vendors offering cooked food, vegetables, soaps, tea and other farm-fresh items have been at each session, which is held at the Nature Center’s greenhouse. Alexis Gazy, the farmers’ market master since its opening in 1999, said previously that she wanted to expand the market because there has been a demand for more foods grown by Connecticut farms.
