Westport, Ct. – Anyone familiar with the Eileen Fisher brand knows that a commitment to sustainability is key to the company’s mission. And in keeping with their mission, each year Eileen Fisher of Westport creates a store within a store in support of the Westport Farmers’ Market. On May 4th, select vendors from the WFM will sell handcrafted food and fare in a pop up at the Eileen Fisher store at 160 Main Street in Westport. 10% of all proceeds from purchases in the store on that day will benefit the Westport Farmers’ Market.
According to Lori Cochran-Dougall, executive director of the WFM, this is a prime example of the WFM’s own commitment to partnerships within the community. “We are so grateful to the Eileen Fisher team for recognizing the importance of local food and farms to the health and wellbeing of the Westport community and look forward to this WFM pop up every year.”
This year’s vendors include:
Dirt Road Farm
Staples High School Culinary with Chef Ganz
Nutty Bunny Vegan Ice Cream
Righteous Skin Care
K is for Cookies
“This is a great opportunity for those who haven’t been to our market on Thursdays – and for everyone who has – to shop at this iconic store while supporting the area’s best farmers’ market,” says Cochran-Dougall. “Bring your friends and make a day out of it!”
The Westport Farmers Market is committed to providing fresh, local, healthy and seasonal food. We aspire to create a fun, safe and healthy community environment for education and socialization. Our mission is to increase awareness, knowledge and support for local producers focused on sustainable and healthy growing practices.
