The Niantic Saturday Winter Farmers’ Market – still the same market, just looks a little different this year.

Niantic Main Street has been bringing us the Winter Market since 2017, and this year is no different. Every Saturday from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m. you can visit the Market at Smith’s Acres at 4 W. Main Street, right across the street from Niantic Center School.

The market was moved from Sundays to Saturdays last year to better accommodate Smith’s new schedule this winter.

Join us for lots of great, local food and crafts. You will find the same vendors each week; many are the same vendors you look for each week at the Summer Market. In keeping with Covid recommendations, we have fewer vendors than in past years, and we are limiting guest vendors. Check in at Niantic Main Street, Niantic Farmers’ Market and Smith’s Acres on Facebook to learn of the occasional guest vendor.
