Congratulations to our Stonington Farmers Market frendors Bette and Ken Kral on the one year anniversary of their Water’s Edge Wine Shop in Stonington. To celebrate they are inviting you to a complimentary wine tasting on May 8th from 4-7PM. This event is a splendid way to acquaint yourself with your neighbors as well as the latest wine trends. The sign below was spotted on facebook but you know it’s a great idea and Water’s Edge is where to buy it!

Welcome New Vendors

mkt

The Stonington Farmers Market opens for the season on Friday May 22nd from 10AM to Noon. We ask our vendors to show up a little earlier than usual so we can figure out our assigned spaces. Returning vendors get the same spots but this year we have a few people dropping out and some new people coming in. We welcome these new vendors. Please send to katyallgeyer@mac.com the webmaster your contact info and URL links to website or facebook so your customers can reach you via our Vendor Directory.

In spite of all the troubles of the last 6 months: barn burning down along with animals inside; 24×112 hoop house that their raspberries were grown in collapsing and late warm weather, spring brings new birth to the farm–Kevin Poland.
