I recently visited the Coventry Farmer’s Market, reported by Yankee Magazine as the “Best Farmers’ Market in New England”, and it was just like a country fair! There were many local produce vendors and other vendors selling Kettle Corn, Fruit Smoothies, cheese, bread, cut flowers, and NoRA’s fabulous Cupcakes. The weather was perfect. The crowds started arriving 30-minutes before the 11am opening and brought kids, folding chairs, dogs and even a pet goat.
The Coventry Summer Farmer’s Market will run to the end of October at the Nathan Hale Historical Homestead. Visitors can also enjoy a tour of the historical homestead for $5.00. Visit the Coventry Farmer’s Market website for directions and more information, or like them on facebook for the latest happenings. They also hold the Coventry Winter Farmer’s Market on Sunday’s at the Coventry High School.
