Now it's one thing to talk the talk but can you walk the walk? All that takes is getting up on Saturday morning, putting your pants on and going to the Danbury Farmer's Market.

Don't Miss Out on a Cornucopia of Delicious, Natural Wonders at the Danbury Farmer's Market

The Danbury Farmer's Market takes place on the Danbury Green every Saturday, and runs through October. You can shop with cash, credit, debit and even use SNAP, FMNP, WIC and Senior benefits at the Market. You can purchase produce and more from some of the area's best vendors including: 

  • Brewster Pastry 
  • Brown Dog Farm 
  • Mothership Bakery 
  • Clatter Valley Farm 
  • Jose Flores Flowers 
  • Killiam & Bassette Farmstead
  • Mitchell Farm
  • Smith Acres Farm 
  • Sullivan Farm 
  • Yup Yup Dog Treats
  • Cafe Avion 

I went recently, and wanted to share my experience and recommend the market. 

In a world of processed food and robots we all have to do our part to keep American farmers in business, it really benefits us all. If you are interested in getting on the mailing list for the DFM, click here. If you have interest in being a vendor, you can find the application here.

The website also has many great recipes and parking information. Parking is not as bad as people make it sound, especially on a Saturday morning. If you cannot find street parking, there are two garages nearby, the Patriot parking garage and the Bardo parking garage.

P.S. It was nice a day out for my wife and I and we were able to fill the fridge with clean, delicious food when it was done. Then, while we were there, I spoke to a woman with no connection to myself or the Home of Rock and Roll I-95 about her experience, and this is what she had to say.

OK, I'll admit it, I know her.

Shelton Rec Center is the Site of a Decommissioned U.S. Missile Defense Base

The recreation center on Mohegan Road in Shelton, CT is all fun and games now but was once the site of some serious business. Shelton is not the only town in CT with a frightening Cold War past, Ansonia and Fairfield boast similar remains.

Inside the Holding Cells and Grand Rooms of Danbury's Fairfield County Courthouse

One of Danbury's most significant buildings is the vacant courthouse on Main Street. I took a tour of it recently and captured images to share with you. This is a look at the judge's chambers, inside the holding cells and around the grand courtroom of the Fairfield County Courthouse.
