Why is shopping locally so important?
- You support local businesses at the Glastonbury Farmers Market.
- You protect the character of our community.
- You keep local dollars in the community.
- You help protect the environment (factory farm food uses a lot of resources)
- You help create jobs.
- You increase your home value (yes, towns with independent local business districts tend to have higher home values).
- You safeguard your families health, Fresh is best!
- You protect New England’s beautiful scenery. Yup, buying from farms helps preserve land.
- You discover amazing new and delicious food items you’ll never find at a big chain store.
- You play a larger role in our community. Shake the hand that feeds you.
- Have fun! Local farmers markets are more lively, creative, have beautifully decorated products and locally sourced compared to the big box stores.
- Even if you just replace one of your holiday items with a local product you’ll be making a difference in our community.
The Glastonbury Farmers Market is all about local – we hope you will join us!

We are excited to welcome back Executive Chef Jordan Stein for a chef demonstration on Saturday from 10 – 1 PM. Jordan is currently
at Bobby V’s in Windsor Locks and he is getting rave reviews.
Jordan will be preparing one of his signature dishes – chicken tacos using local meat and produce from Ladies of Lebanon and Thompson Street Farm. We encourage you to stop by and catch up with Jordan and sample one of his tacos!
In addition would you consider either bringing produce and/or purchasing extra produce and which will be donated to Clark House here in Glastonbury. One of our market’s biggest missions is to give back to the community by supporting local healthy eating. What better way to do that than provide fresh fruits and vegetables to Clark House.
