brighton farmers market
1150 S. Winton Road (Brighton High School)
May 22 - October 3
The Brighton Farmers’ Market is sponsored by the Town of Brighton, and is a weekly, producer-only market. The market was founded in 2008 as part of the Town’s Color Brighton Green initiative, which was established to promote environmental sustainability among Brighton residents and businesses.
The Brighton Farmers’ Market was formed to bring the pleasures of eating local food to the residents of Brighton and nearby communities. By connecting consumers to the farmers who grow food in an environmentally sound manner, the market can enhance the well-being of the consumers, the farmers, and the greater community. Buying delicious vegetables, fruit, and meat directly from local farmers allows us to reconnect with the source of our food and participate more fully in a sustainable food system.
