Paradise Found — The Paradise Green Farmers’ Market


Opening on Monday June 14th!

Friends and families will once again be able to enjoy the fruits (and vegetables) of CT farmers’ labor every Monday from 2pm – 6pm through October.

Situated in the heart of Stratford on Paradise Green, the market will pick up anew. Located at 121 Huntington Avenue, your best bet for parking will be at our friends The Stratford Baptist Church. The Town of Stratford and the Church have collaborated to provide nearly 50 parking spaces conveniently located at 40 Park Street, directly across from the Green near the Gazebo.

Gazy Brothers Farm will be back with their amazing vegetable display. Eaglewood Farms is back with pork and eggs. Dash ‘n Drizzle is back again with flavored oils, balsamic vinegars, spices and salts. Grab a coffee too! Yellow King Brews is looking forward to seeing you again.

Oronoque Farms is new to the Farmers Market but returns to Stratford in all their glory with pies, donuts and a host of CT made products!
Saint X Foods – FAMOUS for their pesto mozzarella sandwiches, baked goods and other treats is a newcomer to Stratford. They are participating in many of the best markets in the CT and Stratford finally reeled them in! Get there early – they frequently sell out.

These folks and more will be there on Monday so come on down and spend some time with us. A rotating list of crafters and confectioners will join the crew this year. Different and surprising vendors will be coming and going to keep each visit to the market fresh and new.

This year, it is not just about the Farmers’ Market either. It’s about returning to normal life and getting out again. Right across the street there are a wonderful array of retailers to visit. Many are new as well. We are teaming up to give you the best reason to GET OUT OF THE HOUSE and spend some casual time walking around town and seeing one another again. Who knows who you will bump into.

Yellow Kings Brews in town for 4 hours a week, Kasia and her Open Door Tea is there all week long. If you haven’t been to Kasia’s check it out, the perfect answer to your cookie cutter coffee and tea shop. Inside you’ll find great food and a variety of CT made items and products as well.

If pesto mozzarella is not your thing, visit Angela at Subway and she will make you whatever you like with a smile. Franchise owners are small business people as well. Not finding your favorite baked good? Check out Icing on the Cake – a Stratford institution open 7 days a week! They have got the full array! And if Eaglewood Farms’ duck eggs don’t strike your fancy, take a seat at The Sitting Duck and order as you please!

Stratford has the whole enchilada so you better come hungry and bring a BIG BAG to lug it all home with. We are all in this together, so get out there and come together! It’s just another day in Paradise every Monday afternoon.
