Even though we are just feeling the first blush of spring, First Town Downtown has already begun planning for our Annual Farmers Market this summer. As you may know, farmers markets have never been more popular, draw residents from all over Windsor and surrounding areas, and are a fabulous place to promote local business.

The First Town Downtown Farmers Market has attracted thousands of visitors for over ten years and continues to encourage individuals and families to visit Windsor Center in accordance with social distancing guidelines. We are also proud of our partnership with the Windsor Food and Fuel Bank, who provide market payment vouchers to Windsor residents struggling with food insecurity.
