The Fairfield Farmers Market was started in 2016 by local restaurant owner Bill Auer in collaboration with Mark Barnhart, Fairfield’s Director of Community & Economic Development, and the Town’s Economic Development Commission. “We are delighted to have the farmers market return to downtown Fairfield for its third season,” remarked Mr. Barnhart. 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.”
