Fresh produce keeps crowds coming to Shelton's Canal Street

SHELTON — The farmer’s market keeps the crowds coming to Canal Street every Saturday.

The market, at 100 Canal St. East in downtown, runs every Saturday from 9 to noon throughout the spring and summer.

Vendors include Laurel Glen Farm, East Village Farm, Oronoque Farms, Vic's Guac Shop, The Healing Herb Garden, The Candleman, Grassy Hill Farm, Muggers Marrow and Three Bridges Coffeehouse, with more expected to join as the season progresses, according to market administrator Meg Hyndman.

The market also features the Valley Sprouts Club for children beginning at 10 a.m.

Emily Wrogg, a teacher at a nature-based school, leads the program. Those interested can register their children at the market — $5 for one child or $10 for unlimited children (per family). Each club member will receive a backpack filled with Valley Sprout items.

The Valley Sprouts Club is sponsored by a grant from the Valley Community Foundation.

Those attending the market are asked to follow current CDC COVID-19 guidelines. Any food purchased can be eaten on the grassy areas around the market building, Hyndman said.
