Mayor Laura R. Hoydick commented, “The Paradise Green Farmer’s Market has become a staple of the summer and early fall seasons here in Stratford. I love that each week the market provides an opportunity for residents and visitors to find unique crafts, delicious and Connecticut-grown produce, and more! It is also a fun way to take a break and get outside, meet old and new friends, and generally enjoy the beauty of the Green. Many thanks to the various vendors for sharing their goods with our community, and special thanks to the market’s manager, Tom Dillon, for his commitment to making the Paradise Green Farmer’s Market a success every season!”

“Find yourself in paradise every Monday afternoon!  Farm Fresh food and fun for the kids is just the start at the Farmer’s Market!  A full variety of fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, baked goods and much more will be up for offer! Grab the kids, call your friends, and bang on the neighbor’s door and head for the market starting June 17!” said Tom Dillon, the market’s manager.
