Farmers Market open Fridays

The Groton Farmers Market at the Williams Barn will open for its 11th season on July 11. The market will be open every Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will continue through Oct. 10.

Again this year, the market will be held in the field behind the barn at 160 Chicopee Row in Groton, just 1.5 miles north of Main Street.

Vendors signed up for the 2014 Market include farmers with vegetables, herbs, flowers, plants, fruit, frozen meat and berries, as well as food products made or processed in the Groton area with local ingredients such as breads, baked goods, honey, eggs, maple syrup, jams and jellies.

This year, the market will again offer live music supported by the town of Groton Lecture Funds on most of the afternoons, with kick-off on Friday by Kenny Selcer.

The Farmers Market is supported by a grant from the Peter E. Bertozzi Trust from the town of Groton.
