An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until October 7, 2020
Chrysalis Center’s “Homestead Farmers’ Market” is open for the season every Wednesday from 2-5pm. The market features fresh vegetables and lettuce grown from the organization’s hydroponics program, as well as local farmers.
Located on Chrysalis Center’s main campus at 255 Homestead Avenue in Hartford, the Homestead Farmers’ Market provides fresh local foods to families in the area’s most impoverished neighborhood. In addition to local produce, vegetables and herbs for sale, the market will feature freshly baked goods from Chrysalis Center’s culinary training kitchen, La Cocina, the organization’s commercial kitchen which offers hands-on training for clients.
New procedures are in place this year as issued by the USDA, State and local guidelines to ensure the safety of customers, farmers and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, which include wearing a mask, social distancing and extra hand washing stations. Chrysalis Center’s Homestead Farmers’ Market is part of OH SNAP! a collaboration between farmers markets in Hartford and is open on Wednesdays from 2-5pm and runs through October 7, 2020. It is located in Chrysalis Center’s upper parking lot and open to the public. Visitors may use their SNAP (food stamp), electronic benefit transfer (EBT) cards, WIC, and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program benefits to buy items at the Market.
