The Market will be held from 3:00-7:00 p.m., with special anniversary festivities starting at 4:00 p.m. Spokesperson Lili Ott promised free watermelon, decals for the kids, festive music, and highlights
from the past decade. Families are invited to hike the trails surrounding the Williams Barn; the Barn and restored Engine Shed will be open; and best of all, everything is free and open to all.
In 2003, The Williams Barn Committee realized that Groton needed to have a Farmers Market and invited area farmers to participate. Initially, fresh produce was the main focus of the market but over the years, prepared food has gained popularity. Now, fresh seafood including the wildly popular $10 lobster roll, wines, frozen meats, cheese, bagels, marshmallows and pasta are offered along with everyone’s favorite corn, tomatoes, and juicy summer fruits.
Several vendors have been a part of the market for all ten years: Kirk Farm, J. Gilson Greenhouses, and Chad Spiczka.
