A sure sign that summer is almost here is the opening of the outdoor version of the Litchfield Hills Farm-Fresh Market in Litchfield. The market opened on Saturday in the parking lot at Center School and featured more than a dozen vendors.
In its 13th year, the market is again led by market master Kay Carroll from Brookside Farm II in Litchfield, which makes and sells maple syrup. Returning vendors include Berry Ledges Apiary in Milton, Wild Carrot Farm in Litchfield, Mohawk Mountain Mushroom in Goshen, and March Farms in Bethlehem. Tasty Empanada in Thomaston is a new vendor.
The market is open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
