Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 7, the New Canaan Nature Center will host a winter farmer's market on Tuesdays from noon to 3 p.m.

The market is open to the public and will feature winter produce, dairy, meat, baked goods and other sundries from a number of Connecticut-based vendors. Expected vendors include Riverbank Farm, Gazy Brothers Farm, Goatboy Soaps, Butterfield Farm, Smyth's Trinity Farm, Mamacat's Tea, Raus Coffee, Whistle Stop Bakery and Connecticutly Grown Hot Sauce.

The winter farmer's market, a joint partnership between the New Canaan Nature Center and the market, will take place as a pilot program for the month of February and will possibly be extended throughout the spring and to Saturday mornings as well.

"We are thrilled to host this winter market for the community and to help promote local Connecticut farmers and producers," Laura Heckman, New Canaan Nature Center's executive director, said. "The market will provide a wonderful service to our members and hopefully will bring new visitors who will walk the trails, visit the animals and learn more about the Nature Center."
