Tolland Farmers’ Market Closing Soon for 2014 Season

The Tolland Farmers’ Market on the Tolland Green is coming to an end soon for this 2014 season.  Please join us for the Saturdays in October and November (ending Nov. 22nd) from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  Tolland Green is located near the intersection of Route 195 and Route 74 just a 1/2 mile from Exit 68 off Interstate 84, and is an excellent example of a preserved Colonial center ringed by colonial homes, some with Victorian modifications.  It is home to several museums and the Arts Center of Tolland.  We hope you will find that a visit to the Farmers Market in this lovely setting is well worth the drive.  All are invited to enjoy a morning at the Tolland Farmers’ Market on beautiful historic Tolland Green.
