New Haven CitySeed Markets
CitySeed, a New Haven based non-profit concerned with “engag[ing] the community in an equitable, local food system that promotes economic development, community development and sustainable agriculture,” holds weekly farmers' markets in four different locations in the city: Downtown, Fair Haven, Wooster Square and Edgewood Park.
The markets provide locally-grown food and products, which tend to be healthier, fresher and tastier than supermarket produce. The fruits and vegetables don’t travel from another state, so they are usually picked the day of the market. CitySeed markets accept food stamps/EBT in an effort to make fresh food available to the entire community. The estimated local economic impact of CitySeed’s farmers’ markets is $1,005,481.
Market times and locations are:
Wednesdays, 9:30 am -2:00 pm: Downtown, in front of City Hall on Church St.
Thursdays, 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm: Fair Haven, Quinnipiac River Park, Front St. and Grand Ave.
Saturdays, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm: Wooster Square Park, Chapel St. and Depalma Court
Sundays, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm: Edgewood Park, Whalley Ave. and West Rock Ave.
