The goal of the Ellington Farmers' Market is to provide our community with a variety of products that are grown, harvested, produced or handcrafted in the state of CT, connect residents to food production, help create healthier eating habits, enhance the quality of life in the Ellington area by supporting low income families through matching SNAP and Farmers' Market Nutrition Program vouchers and provide a community activity which fosters social gathering and interaction and preserve Ellington’s unique agricultural heritage by supporting local farmers.

Bring your EBT cards to the market booth

before you shop to double your purchasing power 


This November 30 th we are participating in the worldwide annual “radical generosity” event called Giving Tuesday. While there are thousands of nonprofit organizations to choose from, we hope to attract financial support for the market by focusing on the impact of keeping contributions local. We reach out to you and invite you to help us in our efforts. 

Your support will allow us to continue to provide weekly live music, educational programming, the kids Power of Produce Club, and, notably, our matching SNAP  program which has gained recognition for matching the most SNAP dollars out of all rural and suburban farmers’ markets in the state of Connecticut. This last program benefits not only our most at-risk families and senior citizens by giving them the buying power to purchase fresh, local, healthy ingredients at the market, but also benefits our local farmers and food producers helping to keep their farms and businesses afloat.
