There are only five more Saturdays for residents to enjoy plants, coffee, fresh produce, eggs, cheeses, meats, baked goods, jerky, oat bars, and organic soap products from the downtown Bristol Farmers Market.

“Attendance has been great throughout the summer,” said Mayor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu.

Vendors including Better Baking by Beth, Gresczyk Farms, KAL Company Handcrafted Oat Bars, Nature View Farms, Ridge Runner Soap Co, Twin Pines Farms, Café Real, West Side Jerky, Mrs. Mumblebee Flowers, and Kathleen’s Garden.

“After a couple of weeks not at the Market, we are excited to have Café Real back as a vendor,” stated Justin Malley, economic development director. “He is in the process of opening a place in the West End on School Street and has been growing his customer base here at the market.

We have had some cranky people looking for their Columbian coffee on Saturdays, and they will be happy to see him return.”

Mayor Zoppo-Sassu and members of the City Council also staff the City Information booth and are available to citizens who may have concerns and questions but can’t get to City Hall during normal business office hours.
