Peach festival at the Chester Sunday Market


What is better than a sweet fresh peach picked at its peak of ripeness? Perhaps its short season makes us long for the peach throughout the year. Get your fill of fresh CT grown peaches this Sunday at the market.

Chester Sunday Market


Chester Sunday Market
We invite you, community residents, local gardeners and farmers, business owners,  religious institutions, educators, and town officials to join in on the discussion of a Chester Sunday Market. The success of our town and its future depends on our involvement and contributions to support each other and maximize our resources. The goal is to become a model in our region by promoting economic relocalization, maximizing the use and sale of local products, and most importantly, strengthening our town’s economic viability. This concept creates a platform to help ourselves adjust to changing times and uses our individual skills, creativity and collaboration to make that happen. From our dedication, purpose, and example, we will be regarded as a town that cares for and encourages its well-being through community involvement, support of Chester businesses, artisans, and local food sources.

We welcome suggestions from our merchants and all community residents in shaping this market with true community involvement and spirit. It is a market by, and for every person in Chester. We hope you will join us. Please take a moment to answer the questions below, or write your own paragraph. You can post answers as a comment on the blog.
