September is harvest time in Connecticut and visitors on Wednesday to the Wilton Historical Society can celebrate the season’s bounty at a Farmers Market here held each Wednesday in August and September from 12 noon to 5 p.m.
Visitors will find fresh vegetables, fruit, flowers, jams and jellies, bread, baked goods, pesto, cheese, honey, and maple syrup plus other homemade goodies, all from local growers and makers. Shop for organic produce, including heirloom varieties, from Ambler Farm; indulge in delectable bread, sandwiches, hand-made mozzarella and more provided by Beldotti Breads; or enjoy a take-out lunch or dinner from gourmet food trucks. A variety of local artisans will also be represented. The Farmers Market at the Wilton Historical Society will take place Sept. 4,11,18 and 25th.
When you visit the Farmers’ Market, stop in at the Historical Society! See Bullets, Bonds, and Butter: Wilton Responds to War, 1776 – 2006, exhibition (through October) and shop the Betts Store museum shop.
