The Fairfield Farmers Market was started in 2016 by local restaurant owner Bill Auer in collaboration with Mark Barnhart and the Fairfield Economic Development Commission. “We are delighted to have the farmers market return to downtown Fairfield after a very successful inaugural season,” remarked Mark Barnhart, Director of Community & Economic Development. First Selectman Mike Tetreau added, “Folks love the farmers market and appreciate both the variety and high quality of the products. It’s a great way to support local farms, and it’s a fun community gathering at the same time.”

The Downtown market joins the Greenfield Hill Farmers Market, located at 65 Hillside Road, which is held Saturdays from 10AM to 3PM, through the fall.
