Bristol’s Farmers Market Returns to Downtown on June 22

Downtown Farmers Market | Bristol Development Authority

The City of Bristol announced the opening day for the 2019 season of Bristol’s Farmers Market to be held in Downtown Bristol at Centre Square — across the street from City Hall — on Saturday, June 22, 2019.

Bristol’s Farmer’s Market has been a staple of the Bristol community for several years. It started in a parking lot on Route 6 and was moved to its current location downtown in the summer of 2016, making it easily accessible from the City’s bus line and within walking distance to many of Bristol’s restaurants and eateries.

The 2019 season will begin on Saturday June 22 from 10 am to 1 pm and will run every Saturday until October 26. This year there will be free musical entertainment each week which will highlight many local musicians and bands. Krista Goodrich, a Bristol Eastern High School graduate will be performing on June 22. Krista, also known locally as Krista Johnson likes to sing Americana, folk, and acoustic music.

The purpose of Bristol’s Farmers Market is to create a regional destination in downtown Bristol through a communal experience each weekend where people can connect with community members and local producers like farmers, artisans, food vendors, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and more.

Products range from farm fresh vegetables, fruits and products from local farms, to homemade beef jerky, to baked goods, coffee, maple syrup and other locally-produced products.

The City of Bristol Farmers Market is recognized by the Connecticut Department of Agriculture as accepting payment vouchers from the Women, Infants, and Children Farmers Market Nutrition Program and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program. All participating farms are certified by the Connecticut Department of Agriculture.
