We took advantage of a beautiful post-Isaias day in Old Greenwich, with many out and about (and likely avoiding the storm-related power outages at their homes -- just like us), to visit the Old Greenwich Farmer's Market.
The OG Farmer's Market takes place ever Wednesday (in season) at 38 West End Avenue in the parking lot of the Living Hope Community Church. This popular market has been offering Connecticut grown, farm-fresh products -- and promoting local businesses in a lively, family-oriented setting since 2010.
The market was very active, with so many cooking at home during these social distancing days -- and some, no doubt, taking the opportunity to get out of the house and enjoy the arrangement and colors of such a wide variety of fresh organic vegetables and fruits. Tomatoes. Nectarines. Potatoes. Peaches. Plums. Beets. Swiss Chard. Celery. Garlic. Watermelon. More.
Some of the vendors included Riverbank Farm (Roxbury, CT) and Jack Knife Sharpening. Carrot Top Kitchens (Redding, CT) was on hand with their soups - including their famous Gazpacho, plus salads and fresh pickles. Kontoulis Family Olive Oil was offering their sought-after olive oils and olive spreads.
Additionally, Abilis, a local 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides services and supports for over 700 individuals with special needs and their families from birth through the life span, had workers representing their Competitive Employment Program at the market offering Grahamberries (organic blueberries).

If you visit the OG Farmer's Market this year, remember: Shoppers are asked to wear masks and maintain social distance between customers. Please move quickly through the market in the direction of the arrows.
