Your guide to Fairfield County farmers markets

|

We are well into spring and that means it’s time for farmers markets in Fairfield County to open.

If you live in one of the handful of towns that has a market to open in May, you may have already picked up your fresh ramps and garlic scapes, others will have to wait until June, or — gasp — even July.
