Don’t miss out on early season vegetables (including asparagus & strawberries), mouth-watering pastries, artisan bread fresh from the oven, fresh eggs, prepared foods, chicken, pork and beef at the opening day of the Darien Farmer’s Market.

Many thanks to Urstadt Biddle Properties for their ongoing support, and allowing the Market to continue at this wonderful, easily accessible location.
