Our produce is as fresh as you can get – corn picked that day, bread made that day, eggs pulled from the coop that morning, as well as many other handcrafted & picked items! Please feel free to join us and enjoy the quality, freshness, & fun of our market!!!
We’re pleased to introduce you to “The Vendors” at the market!
Hilary Barberie owns Back for More™ BBQ Sauce, 203-318-8253, and is hand-made locally in Madison, CT. It is a tangy and spicy Carolina-style sauce that is ideally suited to pork and chicken on the grill, or slow-cooked in the oven. We have been cooking up batches of this sauce to the delight of family and friends for almost 20 years. We decided it was time to share this delicious sauce with more barbecue fans. We will be at the market every Saturday and hope you’ll stop by for a sample. Back for More is made with all-natural, high-quality ingredients—and contains NO high-fructose corn syrup. If flavor and quality matter to you as much as they do to us, then we know that you will be back for more! www.BackForMoreBBQ.com
