It’s our favorite time of year—summers in Hartford consist of live music, festivals, and farmers' markets. Whether it’s your first time going to a farmers' market or you’re looking to discover a new one, we’re sharing all the farmers' markets happening this season in Hartford.
Formerly known as the Hartford Regional Market, the Connecticut Regional Market is held every Saturday and Sunday from 6:00am–9:00am from May through October.
The Market is a 33-acre facility with over 185,000 square feet of warehouse and refrigerated space located at 101 Reserve Road in Hartford. Every weekend, more than 100 vendors are on-site with goods such as fresh vegetables, fruit, honey, eggs, and plants. The largest farmers' market in the area, the Connecticut Regional Market is the perfect place to get the best of both worlds—flowers and farm-fresh goods. Some vendors may sell out before 9:00 am, so it’s best to get to the market extra early!
