The talented farmers of Connecticut have proven that they can do more than just produce delicious fruits and vegetables - they can create some home-grown excitement! The new Blue Back Farmers’ Market debuted this past Sunday, June 19, 2022 in the center of West Hartford and brought in a healthy crowd of approximately 700, who came together to enjoy the fresh produce, musical performances, cooking demonstrations and many other celebratory activities.
"The blend of live music, great vendors and a cooking demo really work, just what we're looking for as we try to build a market where people come to shop but want to linger," said Mary Collins, Co-Founder of Blue Back Famers’ Market.
If you missed the first Blue Back Farmers’ Market, don’t let that soil your day! The Farmers’ Market takes place every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the West Hartford Town Hall parking lot a few hundred yards from Blue Back Square.
The agenda for the Farmers’ Market this Sunday, June 26th includes a recycling education session with West Hartford Town Recycling Coordinator, Katherine Bruns from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and a weaving demonstration conducted by the Hartford Artisans Weaving Center from 11:30 a.m.to 1 p.m.

It has two primary entrances, one on Raymond Road and the other on Main Street with ample free parking in the West Hartford Town Hall Parking Lot and surrounding streets.
