The new Sunday edition of the Westport Farmers Market debuted today on a shaded meadow behind the Westport Center for Senior Activities.

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.
Buck is a handsome, endearing hound mix, a brown-eyed boy with freckles! Though timid, Buck has begun to come out of his shell. He likes other dogs, enjoys ear rubs and loves to go for walks. For more information about Buck, call Westport Animal Control at 203-341-5076.
A lush green lawn of the Westport Center for Senior Activities was the venue for today’s debut of the Sunday Westport Farmers Market. The opening of the Sunday version followed last year’s successful launch of the weekly Thursday market at the Westport Country Playhouse, which continues this year. The Sunday market is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Larry Untermeyer for WestportNow.com
