An expanded farmers market will be hosted by CityCenter Danbury, beginning next month. The market is being moved from Friday afternoons to Saturdays. It will feature more vendors and live entertainment.
Executive Director PJ Prunty says some residents requested a weekend date because they couldn't get to the farmers market during a work day. He is hoping this move will expand the reach of the market and make it more accessible to downtown residents.
Prunty says the developer of the Kennedy Flats apartment complex, across the from the farmers market, is providing a one year grant. The funding from Greystar Developers will be used to pay for performances by students in the Western Connecticut State University music department.
Vendors offering typical produce found at farmers markets will be joined this season by those offering handcrafted soaps, organic dog treats and other items.
The farmers market will be held on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm starting on June 25th.
