The Tony Inzero Farmers Market will open its 2022 season today in the Oak Street Beach parking lot off Captain Thomas Boulevard.
The “Start of the Season” celebration will feature food trucks and live music by West Haven’s Howie Horvath.
Through Oct. 15, the market, nestled on the right side of the Oak Street parking lot, will include state farmers selling homegrown fruits and vegetables and crafters selling wares from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursdays and Saturdays.
It will also include more than 20 different vendors, crafters, organizations and food trucks throughout the season.
Parking is available in the Oak Street municipal lot and on Palace Street. Oak Street is on the senior shuttle route and the CTtransit route. In addition, a van will run from the West Haven Senior Center, 201 Noble St., to Oak Street on Thursdays.
The Department of Elderly Services will start distributing farmers market vouchers to eligible city residents next week. For information on the voucher program, call the department at 203-937-3507.
The farmers market is sponsored by the city and has operated since 2000. It was dedicated in 2010 in memory of Anthony F. “Tony” Inzero, a leader in the downtown business community who co-owned Flower Affair on Campbell Avenue for many years and was a founding member and longtime president of the West Haven Business Association.
