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.
