The Shelton Farmers Market will return on Saturday, July 15.
There’ll be have a variety of vendors, live music, and more food being served off of the grill.
This Farmer’s Market staff are excited to announce the creation of, “Valley Sprouts,” a new children’s program at the Shelton Farmer’s Market. Every third Saturday of the month will be a themed market dedicated to kids – with games and activities, interactive music performances, yoga for kids, scavenger hunts, sensory experiences, educational activities, and more! This month we introduce a “book nook” for the Sprouts with books for kids to read and experience while at the market – farming, agriculture, recycling, healthy eating and the natural world are themes found in the books in our “nook.”
This weekend will be the second Valley Sprouts Event consisting of the following segments:
July 15: Never Refuse to Reuse
9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Balloon Animals with Bryan (Magic Cafe)
10 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Kids music with Kristen
11a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Kid’s Yoga with Jackie
The vendors will range from selling local fresh veggies, meats, baked goods, flowers, eggs, wine, berries, handmade items and all natural dog treats. This is a producer only market according to Connecticut DoAG regulations so you will buy directly from the farmer/producer. The market accepts cash, credit and debit, SNAP, EBT and Farmers Market WIC FMNP.
