Black Rock Farmers’ Market Launches

More than 25 vendors are participating in the new Black Rock Farmers’ Market, some on a rotating basis. Opening day, June 7, brought so many shoppers that vendors were selling out by mid-morning. “It’s better than I ever dreamed” said co-founder Karyn Leito. “To have the community support it this way is a blessing. It’s like a dream come true.” 

Sport Hill Farm is the anchor organic farm, supplying produce, herbs and some late season ground fruit. The market also serves as a pick up point for the farm’s (CSA) program. 

Organic shoppers will enjoy Shearwater Coffee Roaster’s organic, locally-roasted coffee; GourGanics Salsa made from local, organic produce; 8 to the Bar’s organic granola bars; Source Coffeehouse’s fresh-brewed organic coffee; and Sabita’s artisanal organic teas blended to support holistic health.

 

Black Rock Farmers’ Market is held each Saturday through October 25, from 9am-1pm, at the field at St. Ann Church located at 481 Brewster St in the Black Rock neighborhood of Bridgeport. Businesses interested in becoming a vendor should contact market masters Michelle Margo and Karyn Leito at [email protected] or visit them online at BlackRockFarmersMarket.com. Musicians welcome.
