Fairfield, Conn. – The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce is very happy to announce, that after having to cancel the last two years, that its annual fall “Fairfield Harvest Market & Halloween Costume Dog Parade”, will be held on the Old Town Hall Green (corner of Old Post Road and Beach Road) on Saturday, October 16, from 10am-4pm.

The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce heralds the start of the fall season by welcoming clothiers, jewelers, artisans, and others, to the historic Old Town Hall green, to display their products and items to the public. Featuring more than 70+ well-known and unique retail vendors, shoppers will happily look around and have an opportunity to buy an endless array of fun and beautiful items.  From food items like local honey and BBQ sauce to rustic furniture and Adirondack chairs, shoppers will also find a wide variety of retailers selling jewelry, beauty products, clothing, household items, and pet supplies, all ready to purchase on the spot and also get a jump on gift buying for the holidays. In addition, the Chamber is excited to include the very popular Fairfield Farmer’s Market vendors … who are happy to participate, this being their last weekend in Fairfield to sell their delicious produce and products before the season ends.
