The Farmington Valley YMCA is committed to building healthy families and strong communities. The Granby Farmers' Market supports that goal by providing fresh wholesome foods grown by local farmers. The Granby Farmers' Market’s opening day is Tuesday, June 24 from 3–6:30 at the Farmington Valley YMCA. The market is open to the public.
Our sponsors this year are New England Urgent Care of Simsbury, Liberty Mutual, and Simsbury Bank. Thank them for this generous support of the market. Vendors will include several favorites from last season: Winlox Farms, Killam and Bassette Farmstead, Beech Tree Ranch, Capa Di Roma, Chet's Italian Ice and Dr. Energy Saver. Each week they will have a different theme with fun activities for the kids as well as live entertainment with Anne DiMichiela, Hannah's Field, Chris Sheehan, Thicker Than Water, and many others. There will be several live cooking demonstrations throughout the season with local chef Mike Webster. Look for his delicious recipes on their website.
The YMCA Teen Leaders From The Ground Up will also be participating in the market, growing and selling fresh produce from their community gardens at the YMCA. Stop by to see their gardens and learn all about their exciting projects.
