The Norwalk Health Department Farmers Market is back! Starting this Wednesday, July 2, Norwalk community members can get fresh, locally grown produce each Wednesday in the Health Department parking lot (137 East Avenue) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The market will run until November 5.
“Health experts recommend that we get five servings of fruits and vegetables every day, and we should try to fill half our plate with fruits and vegetables at each meal,” explained Theresa Argondezzi, health educator at the Health Department. “Summertime is a great season for fresh produce. Grilled veggies, corn on the cob, fruit salad—these are all delicious, healthy options, and you can find all the ingredients at our farmer’s market!”
Killam and Bassette Farmstead (South Glastonbury, CT) will bring a variety of fruits and vegetables for purchase at the market again this year. They accept cash, credit, Women, Infants and Children Program (WIC) and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) vouchers.
Space is available for additional vendors offering healthy foods.
