Download the Vendor Map & Market Guidelines

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:

  • If you are feeling sick – stay home, ask a friend or family member to shop for you.
  • We may be required to limit the number of customers into the market at one time, in accordance with guidance from the State of CT Department of Agriculture, so be prepared to briefly wait in line to enter the market.
  • Follow the directional signs which indicate parking areas and the market entrance.
  • If you are unable to maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others, it is recommended that you wear a face mask or cloth face covering while shopping at the market.
  • Upon entering the market use the hand sanitizer – hand sanitizer stations are located
    at both the entrance and exit.
  • Please practice social distancing by keeping a distance of at least 6 feet from other customers and vendors.
  • Please shop with your eyes, not your hands. Vendors will be happy to assist you with items you wish to purchase.
  • Wash all produce thoroughly before using it.

This Saturday, October 31 is the last Farmers Market for the 2020 season. Thank you to our vendors and all who attended and supported the market this season!

The B.E.S.T. Coalition will have a booth at this Saturday’s Farmers Market to promote their mission of creating a healthy community. They will also be providing the first 50 children who attend the market in a Halloween costume with a goody bag and clues to a scavenger hunt, be sure to visit their booth at the entrance of the market to get your goody bag!

The Bristol Exchange Club will also be attending the market with raffle items and a 50/50 to support their community initiatives. Be sure to visit their booth for a chance to win some great prizes!

It’s also your last chance to purchase a commemorative holiday ornament from the Bristol Historical Society – see Tom Dickau to get yours at the Bristol All Heart tent!
