The Bristol Farmers Market runs every Saturday, rain or shine, from June 20 through October 31, 2020 from 10am-1pm in downtown across from City Hall. Products will range from farm fresh vegetables, fruits and products from local farms; to homemade beef jerky; to baked goods, coffee, maple syrup and other locally-produced products. For 2020, we’re excited to welcome back many of the same vendors and a few new ones. Food trucks will also be a staple again this year. See this week’s vendor list below.
The Connecticut Department of Agriculture has deemed farmers markets an essential activity, allowing the Bristol Farmers Markets to continue this summer as an access point to provide a safe and reliable nutritious food source to the community.
The safety of our vendors and the customers who will be shopping at the market is our first priority. The City has worked with the State Department of Agriculture and the Bristol-Burlington Health District to develop guidelines for the market.
Before visiting the market on Saturday, we ask the community to please review the following guidelines, which can also be downloaded in link above:
B.E.S.T.-4-Bristol will be in attendance on Saturday to provide information to the community about how they are working to prevent youth substance misuse and how they are promoting positive youth development and a healthier community, be sure to visit their tent. Also in attendance will be the Bristol Historical Society who will be selling their commemorative holiday ornaments which honor the 100th Anniversary of the Bristol Hospital and the 2020 “Profiles of Courage” commemorative heart medallion honoring essential workers and volunteers that assisted others during the pandemic.
Music will be provided by Brenden Donahue.
