Stonington Farmers Market vendors have been hard at work over the winter preparing for the summer market, which starts on May 26. It takes place at the Island Community Center on Fridays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., rain or shine. The market is friendly to dogs , but we ask that you keep your dogs leashed at all times.
Some of your favorite vendors will be there again this year. Yellow Birch Farm will be back with fresh produce, cajeta and chevre. We learn from Missy Greene via Instagram:
Signs of spring in the greens garden: chives! We’re making chive and onion chèvre this week, available this Friday at our farm stand spring preview, 3-5pm.
Robin Byrne at River Wind Woolies will bring new merino wool and cashmere pillows, finger-less gloves made from recycled wool and cashmere sweaters and beaded leather wrap bracelets.
If you don’t know Robin, here’s a little background:
I am Robin Byrne. I live in coastal Brooksville, Maine with my husband, 2 sons, 6 cats, one dog, some chickens and sometimes other livestock. For as long as I can remember I have been making things with my hands, the first of which were taught to me by my mother and grandmother. Because of the influence of these two great women I am always drawn back to fiber and needle work. I hope you love my work as much as I do making it!
