(Norwalk, Conn.) – On Friday, July 28, 2023, Mayor Harry Rilling announced that this Sunday, July 30, the City of Norwalk is kicking off its first SoNo Farmers Market event at Ryan Park. The SoNo Farmers Market will take place every other Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm until November 19 and will offer the community the opportunity to enjoy locally-grown produce, crafts from Connecticut, and fun for the whole family.
“We are excited to kick off our first SoNo Farmers Market event in Ryan Park this Sunday, where the community will be able to indulge in fresh produce, artisanal goods, family-friendly activities, and live music,” said Mayor Rilling. “We chose Ryan Park because we want residents in South Norwalk to be able to walk out their doors and access locally produced fresh vegetables and fruits in their neighborhood.
