August is amazing time when it comes to buying local in Connecticut. Summer serendipity is finding a farmers’ market setting up right in front of your previously scheduled plans.

Luckily I had my camera in hand while attending my cousin’s relaxed wedding at the First Congregatioaln Church in Madison, CT. When the ceremony was over, the Friday afternoon farmers’ market had opened up at the foot of the church. What a beautiful selection – if you’re in the area, it’s worth stocking up before the weekend begins! We managed a quick walk-through before continuing on to the wedding reception. I apologize – I wasn’t familiar with the vendors with the exception of Barberry Hill Farm (from Dinners at the Farm), but I couldn’t resists sharing the rainbow of colors I found that day.
