Farmers Market Coop Open in Ridgefield
Ridgefielders looking for organic, natural foods and fresh local produce are in luck. Farmers Market Cooperative recently opened its doors at 22 Catoonah Street in Ridgefield, offering residents a farmer-focused, full-service market. The market is open daily from 8am to 6pm.
“We are dedicated to providing wholesome organic and natural foods and fresh local produce, emphasizing products that are farmed locally,” the cooperative wrote on its Facebook page. “We promote healthier life choices in a friendly, service-focused atmosphere where farmers are a valued and essential part of our success.
“Our cooperative will strive to educate our members and patrons about the benefits of organic and whole foods, and of creating a closer connection to food sources. We are committed to strengthening our community through education of all our amazing local farms and what they have to offer by bringing them all under one roof.”
Ridgefield’s previous farmers’ market closed in 2016 after three years of offering fresh fruits and vegetables and other items like jams and even meats at the Lounsbury House Community Center on Main Street.
