Greetings from Greater New Haven
Perks of Summer
One of the great perks of summer is the wide variety of locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables. Take advantage of shopping outdoors and supporting our local farmers. You can also pick up some healthy treats at the area farms. We will update our website as additional information becomes available.

Many of our regional vineyards are open as well. Check our website for additional information.

We strongly recommend that you check the website or call ahead to be sure the farm/market/winery is maintaining regular hours.
