North End Farmers Market
A while back we took a look at some vintage Hartford Farmers Markets put on by Hartford Food Systems. Wednesday, June 27 marks the opening celebration of the 2012 North End Farmers Market. The market will be open from 10AM-1PM on 80 Coventry Street. In addition to great farm fresh food, the market will also featurea musical performance by the Congo Square Ramblers, a cooking demonstration from "Cooking Matters," face painting for children, and an appearance by Mayor, Pedro Segarra.
This market also doubles the amount of SNAP or foodstamp benefits that individuals receive, creating an incentive for low income individuals to shop at the Farmers' market. Great idea, great food, and some free entertainment. In modern day parlance this is known as a "win-win."
