It's great that this market will continue through the winter! I just wish that it was sometimes held on weekends or night. Unfortunately I work in Hartford and can never attend.

I would love to go to the farmer's market, but work full time, and can't go shopping in the middle of the day, like many people.

Any way you could consider having hours that are something like 3:00 to 6:00? so working people can take advantage of the market? Or possibly a Saturday?

We have thought about holding the market in the afternoons because we know that would be better for many Middletown residents. However, an afternoon time would not attract many students or faculty because there are so many other activities going on at that time (and not the same kind of student gathering at lunch time). We will definitely keep that in mind, though, and may try a later time in the future. Thanks for your support!
