Farmers' Market on the Green is one of the gems of downtown Waterbury. Situated in the city's historic public green space, the market creates a community center for shoppers and visitors alike. The shady trees and park benches invite market goers to sit and enjoy the colorful activity of the market. Walking paths and green grass let picnickers lounge nearby and enjoy a fresh, delicious lunch courtesy of the local farms that offer their just-picked produce. The market itself is made up of a wide variety of goods, including organic produce, wool and fiber crafts, and flower arrangements. The market even features a regular cooking demonstration and tasting performed by a local chef. Come downtown for lunch or make an afternoon of it. The market is WIC certified and gladly accepts food stamps, so everyone is welcome to enjoy the bounty of fresh, local food.
