Hartford’s Farmers Markets
When you think Hartford, I’m sure the first thing that comes to mind is not farmer’s markets. Heck, it’s probably not even in your top ten. So it may surprise you that Hartford has farmer’s markets going on every. single. weekday.
Summer season in Hartford is our favorite – Pratt Street, happy hour specials, jazz festivals, and of course, farmer’s markets. They’re a great excuse to get out of the office during your lunch break, support your local community, and bring back fresh goodies. And hey, if you’re lucky, maybe you’ll discover a new food truck or two. The first one we ever went to we discovered the Mercado Food Truck, and oh how we never looked back.
