5/9/2016 - Farmers Market Coming This Summer to Downtown Fairfield
Sherman Green in downtown Fairfield is slated to host a new farmers market beginning Sunday, June 19th. The market will be held weekly on Sundays, from 10AM to 2PM, rain or shine, and continue throughout the summer. The market is expected to feature roughly a dozen local farm vendors and producers, offering a diverse array of fresh and seasonal vegetables, fruit, herbs, bread, eggs and fish.
The farmers market is a pilot initiative of the Fairfield Department of Community & Economic Development, in collaboration with local business owner, Bill Auer, of Firehouse Deli. “We are delighted to help bring a farmers market to downtown Fairfield,” remarked Mark Barnhart, Director of Community & Economic Development, who pitched the idea to the Fairfield Parks & Recreation Commission and secured the necessary approvals. “Bill Auer was really the driving force behind this, and his persistence finally paid off. Bill’s enthusiasm is contagious, and I couldn’t ask for a better partner,” Barnhart added. Bill Auer will serve as Market Master.
“The response from area farmers and producers has been really terrific. We are just so excited to hold a farmers market on Sherman Green, and I think it will be a wonderful addition to the downtown,” stated Bill Auer. Bill added that he is working on a website, which he hopes to profile soon.
