Easy Access to Farm Fresh Food

It's an incredible inspiration every Wednesday afternoon to visit the Woodmont Farmer's Market at the Robert Treat Farm in Milford. As a life long resident of Woodmont it was quite a thrill to see the space at our local farm be used for this worthwhile enterprise.
The atmosphere is friendly and convivial; old friends meet, new friendships are formed. There is a special warmth and excitement that adds a community feel to the wonderful and healthy products that are offered.
There are some 15 farmers/ vendors selling their products. ALL of them exhibit great pride and great enthusiasm as they market their various items.There is great interaction and conversation between customers and sellers. Some of the products offered are fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, flavorful grass fed beef, magnificent fresh seafood from our Long Island Sound waters, beautiful and tasty cheeses, wonderful baked goods, fresh cut flowers and even tasty treats (I am told!!) for animals. Local crafts, musical entertainment and cooking demonstrations from local eateries are all part of the mix.
The Farmer's Market experience is made even more unique by its very location. The Robert Treat Farm has, for decades, been an extraordinary place for locals to shop each year. Mary Treat's incredible and tasteful vision has become a reality this year through the remodeling of the Treat Farm and its out buildings This is a clear testimony to her desire to see the family farm continue to serve its customers for many years to come.
I love this place and I encourage all who have not yet tried it to circle Wednesdays on the calendar. It's a unique experience that will make all who come enjoy their day just a little more than usual.
See you at the Woodmont Farmer's Market in Milford, CT!!!!
