Summer is officially underway as Connecticut farmers are picking early varieties of sweet corn in time for you to celebrate our nation’s independence this upcoming weekend. Connecticut currently has more than 90 farmers’ markets open throughout the state on various days of the week, offering an easy and accessible way to find CT Grown products from a wide array of producers. If getting to the farm to learn firsthand about their practices is of interest, many farm wineries are open all weekend with tastings, live entertainment, and other special events. If you go, be sure to download the Passport to CT Wine Country mobile app and start collecting stamps to redeem for the prize drawing.
