Organized by a volunteer committee of neighborhood residents, and coordinated by the Upper State Street Association, the mission of the Upper State Farm Market is to promote community on Upper State Street and in New Haven by helping to bring fresh, local food to the neighborhood and connecting local farmers with consumers. Want to get involved? Send us a note or stop by the table. We can always use spare hands and more company.
Did you know that you can vote for us in the America’s Favorite Farmers Market contest? If you have a moment, please do express your enthusiasm. Since we’re such a wee neighborhood market, we know our showing will be humble, but we love the idea and the feedback!
