Wesleyan University Farmers' Market Wednesday

From Allie Benson

The Wesleyan University Farmers' Market is starting up again! Held on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 11 AM-2 PM, this market attracts some of the finest vendors from the state of Connecticut! Valuing local and organic products, this market boasts a fine selection of breads, cheeses, honey, coffee, produce, meat, pies, pastries, yarns and much more! Come check it out!

What: The Wesleyan Farmers' Market

Where: Until November 4th, the market will be held on the outdoor patio of Wesleyan's "Usdan" University Center (45 Wyllys Ave). Starting November 18th, the market moves indoors at the building next door (Fayerweather)-- look for the signs! On the 24th of March, the market moves outside for the spring!

When: From 11AM-2PM on the first and third Wednesday of the month.

Sure, but WHEN?: Sept. 16th, Sept. 29th (a special Tuesday market!), Oct. 7th, Oct. 21st, Nov. 4th, Nov. 18th and December 2nd. After winter vacation, markets will run on Feb. 3rd, Feb. 17th, Mar. 3rd, Mar. 24th (a week late, and the first outdoor market of the spring!), April 7th, April 21st, May 4th, and a special Friday market on March 21st.
