Best Farmers’ Market
he state’s largest opportunity for fresh food and fun: From June to October, booths line the grounds of the Nathan Hale Homestead, showcasing weekly themes such as wine, art, honey, and salsa.
Equal parts country fair and farmers’ market, it feels like a momentous celebration, with cooking demonstrations, sustainable-living programs, kids’ activities, musical guests, and local artisans. You’ll find organic and heirloom fruits and vegetables, grass-fed beef, smoked bacon, homemade pesto, spices and salsas, freshly baked breads and sweets, artisanal cheeses, and cut and potted flowers. Nathan Hale Homestead, 2299 South St., Coventry. Sundays 11am-2pm, June-October. For photos from Coventry’s “Market Roots” project, go to: YankeeMagazine.com/more
