Bench Restoration Project!
Friends of Canaan Village and the Canaan Farmers' Market have restored the benches on the Town Common, and added Friends of Canaan Village Plaques. They not only look much better, but are more comfortable and safer. Special thanks to Gary Wood, Reg Barney, and Aaron Allen for their good work. Come sit awhile.
In 2015 the Farmers' Market will run from May 24 to October 11 and is held on the Village Green on Sundays from 10-1
EBT/Debit Cards Accepted!
Shop the Farmers' Market; Reap the Benefits
Fresh vegetables, fruits, meats, baked goods, locally produced crafts, and more are for sale every week at the Canaan Farmers' Market every Sunday through Columbus Day weekend.
Rain or shine, all season long, Canaan Farmers' Market members bring their bounty so you can enjoy fresh, local foods and crafts and get to know the community members who produce them. You'll taste – and feel – the difference.
Come by to see what's in season, plan your supper around the best of the market, connect with the producers you buy from, and reap the health, environmental, social, and economic benefits of eating and shopping locally.
Make the Market a Part of Your Every Weekend!
