Danbury Farmers’ Market Bolstered By Fairfield County Agency Grant
The Danbury's Farmers' Market is stronger today than it was yesterday thanks to a grant from the Fairfield County Community Foundation.
According to a press release issued by City Center on Wednesday (5/12/21), the agency recently gave the Farmers' Market $13,250. That money will allow the Farmers' Market to continue getting healthy food to families who may have difficulty accessing it.
Peggy Zamore is the Markets Program Director and had this to say of the generous grant:
"Over the past twelve years, the Fairfield County's Community Foundation has awarded the Danbury Farmers' Market Community Collaborative about $300,000. This significant level of funding is hugely appreciated by the Collaborative and the Danbury Community. The goal is not just to provide subsistence food for calories, but nutritious high quality fresh food for health. Without Fairfield County's Community Foundation's continued support, our health-promoting incentive programs would simply not be possible."
City Center is the organization behind the Farmers' Market and many of the arts and entertainment programs that drive residents and out of town visitors into the Downtown area of Danbury.
