Jones Family Farms, in the White Hills area of Shelton, is once again hosting its Summer Friday Farmers’ Markets. Spotlighting local foods and products from around Shelton and the area, the Friday markets are focused on promoting what the area has to offer and as Christiana Jones, Market Manager, puts it: “plain ole good food.”
Now in its third year, the Friday Farmers’ Market will feature produce and products from various Shelton Farms. Connecticut artisan cheeses, soups, and local honey will also be offered.
“We are so pleased to have local farmers and business owners joining us again this summer to help share the bounty we all spend so much time growing and creating” said Jones. “It really has become a great community event that people look forward to every week.”
Weekly themes will range from the annual Red, White & Blue Farmers’ Market Kickoff on July 6th to Potatoes to Corn to Tomatoes and more. Add in that the markets are kid friendly with products from the Harvest Kitchen Cooking Studio, wine tastings at Jones Winery, and other entertainment and you have a complete afternoon of local fun.
The markets run every Friday in July and August from 3:30pm – 6:30pm at Jones Family Farms’ Homestead Farm at 606 Walnut Tree Hill Road in Shelton. For more information call 203.929.8425 or visit JonesFamilyFarms.com.
