Beginning at 10 a.m. a stream of buyers made their way to the market where, amid the bleats from four goats, they found a bounty of locally produced fruits, vegetables and baked goods.

The market will operate every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through October. It is meant to allow working people to join those shoppers who frequent the Thursday market next to the Westport Country Playhouse.

The grassy setting surrounded by woods on a hill off Imperial Avenue “offers easier accessibility” than the Playhouse site, said Selectwoman Shelly Kassen.
