About Us

Did you know that the Old State House Farmers Market is the oldest of its kind in Connecticut? In 1643, Hartford was required to establish a "weekly market" at the site of the Old State House. Today, we continue this tradition by hosting the Old State House Farmers Market. The goal of the Old State House Farmers Market is to offer a variety of products from as many farmers and artisan vendors as possible within the available space. We are committed to offering a vibrant marketplace in downtown Hartford where local farmers and artisans can enjoy coming together with the community to share the "best" of what Connecticut has to offer!

The Old State House Farmers Market runs from late spring through mid-fall, ensuring that our patrons enjoy the ultimate in seasonal variety for many months of the year!
