The Bristol Farmers Market returns to downtown every Saturday from 10am to 1pm beginning June 23. Due to the construction of the Bristol Hospital Ambulatory Care Center, the location for this popular weekly attraction will shift north on North Main Street to directly across the street from City Hall and the Police Department.
“The Farmers Market is a certified Connecticut Grown farmers market providing a great opportunity for shopping local,” said Bristol Mayor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu.
The market attracts people to downtown Bristol and gives accessibility to food for low-income seniors that are eligible for the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program by providing coupons for the seniors to use specifically at the market. These coupons are available to eligible seniors as of July 2, by contacting the Bristol Senior Center at: 860-524-7895
